Illinois senator announces new school-funding legislation
from The Southern
In an effort to fix what he sees as a "broken system" of education funding, state Sen. Jason Barickman, R-Bloomington, announced legislation to overhaul the way Illinois doles out education dollars to districts. If passed, the evidence-based model would tie funding to an analysis of each district’s individual costs and needs, using a set of education best practices as a budgeting guideline.
