Bruce Rauner on Education

 

 


Vetoed higher education bill as irresponsible funding

Education: Increase state funding for higher education?

Pritzker: Yes. Need sustained, long-term investment to attract students and businesses dependent on well-educated workforce.

Rauner: Yes. But vetoed funding bill that he considered an irresponsible way to fund higher education.

$100M for early education; close district funding gaps

Two years ago we delivered unprecedented funding for our K-12 schools, and the next year we came back and did it again. In all, our kids are receiving $700 million more per year from the state than two years ago, including an extra $100 million for early childhood education. The practice of proration has come to an end.

We formed a bipartisan task force to recommend changes to the unbalanced way our K-12 public schools are funded. For years Illinois has provided the lowest percentage of education financial support from any state in the country. And we have the largest gap between funding for high income schools and low income schools in the country, both across the state and within the city of Chicago. The task force expects to finish their work in the coming weeks, and we look forward to working on a bipartisan basis to implement their recommendations.

Let families choose traditional, charter, or private schools

For 20 years, I've worked on improving education in Illinois. I've helped lead many education organizations such as the New Schools for Chicago, The Noble Network of Charter Schools, ACT Charter School, & the Chicago Public Education Fund.

Our efforts work. In the public charter schools, the first-year students start grade levels behind, but by the time they graduate high school, most students are going to college.
