Mayor Lightfoot has record resources for schools and city, but continues to fall short in equitably investing in critical needs
The 443 educator layoffs in Chicago Public Schools underscore ongoing failure of Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s handpicked Board of Education to provide every school community with adequate funding for basic needs.
We look forward to working with Gov. Pritzker and the General Assembly to continue increasing funding to CPS and moving toward real stability and predictability for parents, students and school communities.
We should be expecting more from those whom the people elected to lead, but sadly, we have come to expect less from all levels of city government. Today was no exception.
