Board Of Education Asking For 760-Million

(Chicago, IL) — The State’s Board of Education wants an extra 729-million-dollars next year. Most of the cash would be divvied up among schools to make sure they get about 61-hundred-dollars for each student. That’s actually required by law but schools have been shortchanged in recent years. Right now schools are only getting about 89-percent of what they’re supposed to get.
