Dr Brent Clark on the Opportunities and Issues of the New School Year

From Springfield – Dr Brent Clark tells the Illinois Channel of the issues pending for School Administrators as we begin the new school year. He mentions the passage of the new funding formula and the impact that is just beginning to have on improved funding for rural schools and those in poor areas of the state.

He also talks about the impact on schools from the state not passing a budget for two years, and where they stand now in getting the funding that was owed to them on categorical grants.
