Fair Funding for Illinois Schools

1,351 Signatures Goal: 5,000

We, the undersigned, want fundamental change in the way Illinois funds public education. We will no longer tolerate the fact that Illinois, one of the wealthiest states in the nation, has one of the most inequitable methods of funding public education. We demand that Governor Rod Blagojevich acknowledge that Illinois\' system for funding public education is broken and needs to be fixed. We believe the State of Illinois should substantially increase the amount it provides toward the cost of educating our children. We demand that the governor present a plan of action to correct the Illinois school funding problem by September 1, 2004.

Sponsor

The sponsors of this petition are a group of concerned parents in Chicago. We are an ad hoc group bound together by a desire to take action on behalf of public schools across Illinois. We plan to deliver this petition to Governor Blagojevich in late June, 2004. The co-chairs of our group are Lissa Oliver (lissao@earthlink.net), Tamra Nelson and Faith Spencer (markandfaith@earthlink.net).
