Charter funding bill defeated

05/31/2012

A BIG thank you goes out to our hardworking members and partners as we celebrate this victory for neighborhood public schools. HB4277 - A bill that would have increased funding to charter schools - was voted down 45 to 69 in Springfield on the final night of the Illinois General Assembly's Spring Session. Thank you to the hundreds of CTU members and supporters who called and wrote legislators to voice your opposition.
