Putting the New School Funding Formula to Work

Springfield: Now that Illinois just passed a new school funding formula, how long will it take to be implemented? We talk with Dr Brent Clark, Executive Director of the Illinois Association of School Administrators.

The new formula is the first major change to the funding formula, in 20 years.  The new formula was passed by the legislature in late August.  It will change how funds targeted for K-12 education is distributed to school districts across the state.
