Illinois’ Education Leaders on Current Challenges of Funding and Reforms

From Chicago: We sit with the four of the leaders in Illinois education, to hear how the recently passed school funding reform is going to impact schools. How ESSA, Every Student Suceeds Act, is going to be implemented. And, what is the current availability of funding in the wake of a state budget being passed this past summer.

We also hear why Illinois schools are experiencing problems with hiring teachers and even substitute teachers.

We hear from Roger Eddy of the Illinois Assn of School Boards, Dr Brent Clark of the Illinois Assn of School Administrators, Dr Michael Jacoby, of the Illinois Assn of School Business Officials, and Jason Leahy, of the Illinois Principals Assn.
