Schools: Numbers sinking
The Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) has released its annual financial profile of the state’s public schools, and the numbers were not good.
According to the report, more than 100 school districts dropped out of the highest financial ranking in the past year, and the number of districts in the lowest category doubled, reflecting the significant cuts to the state education budget and decreased local revenues of the past several years.
The report is of particular interest as state lawmakers are considering additional funding reductions after already slashing nearly $900 million from the K-12 education budget since 2009.
