Let's work together for our schools — Rauner

IL school superintendents speak at hearing about school funding

State Senator Andy Manar D Bunker Hill discusses SB1 with Senators Jennifer Bertino-Tarrant D-Shorewood Pat McGuire D Crest Hill and State Representatives Natalie Manley D-Joliet and Larry Walsh Jr. D Joliet on Friday August 4 at The Herald News

Scott Bennett, D-Champaign, Urbana Mayor Diane Marlin and League of Women Voters Champaign County President Holly Wilper were also on hand.

The reporter then asked me if I knew that Gov. Bruce Rauner had issued an amendatory veto of a school funding bill and whether I was concerned that might mean schools wouldn't open on time.

The state Senate will reconvene Sunday and the House returns Wednesday.

I've charged the General Assembly with ensuring that the new school funding formula serves all the children in our state, with equal respect for disadvantaged children in all regions of Illinois. Existing state law recognizes the reality that the school districts won't receive that money, but the governor's proposal would order the State Board of Education to ignore that reality.

His demands for making the workers' compensation system more friendly to business, scaling back public employee pensions, legislative term limits and other changes that Democrats refused to approve kept Illinois without a budget for two years. Claypool said the district has no immediate plans for selling bonds for capital needs. "They've all been part of the problem". Not the least of which is they do a crappy job of teaching our kids.

"It takes about a million dollars for Rockford Public Schools to be open for one day".

He called the changes "irresponsible".

The comptroller's office said schools received about $244 million twice a month in state aid in fiscal 2017, which ended June 30. The House has 67 Democrats, so an override would need help from Republicans.

"We believe it will look like the governor's veto, plus some other things, but we aren't sure exactly what", McCombie said.

Negotiations on a compromise school funding agreement are ongoing, Manar said. Their educational opportunities are determined by arbitrary lines on a map that pen families inside a school district's boundaries.

That's the slap in the face. This isn't the way the state or education should be run. On Thursday, Illinois missed sending schools their general state aid. Gov. Rauner and the Illinois Policy Institute have done so repeatedly with SB1, even though Politifact has rated the claim "false" and the almost always pro-Rauner Chicago Tribune editorial board has stated it is not a bailout.

"From the governor's change, every one of my schools is in danger of being hurt". He supports the SB1 bill but is also open to negotiating a bill everyone can agree on. They can move to a high-performing district.

Chicago is the only city in Illinois that may not participate in the state teacher's pension plan but, by law, must maintain its own pension system.

"What Rauner is proposing damages school districts across this state".
