Illinois Education Funding Reform

The questions listed below may seem simple, but when applied to all school districts in our State the answers get a lot more complicated.

  1. How do you determine what is an adequate budget for each School District in our State?
  2. How do you determine how much a community should contribute locally?
  3. How do property tax limit laws impact school funding?
  4. Should the State shift some of the pension costs to local School Districts?
  5. How do you best measure and increase student achievement across the State?
  6. How do you define, encourage and reward fiscal responsibility?
  7. Can Illinois increase funding at the State level enough to hold School Districts harmless?
  8. What other reforms can reduce costs and drive more funding into the classroom?
