Hundreds turned out at a State Capitol rally to support Higher Education. Concerns were expressed about funding for schools and students worried about state MAP grants.
Democratic Gubernatorial candidates were on hand as well with most speakers attacking Governor Bruce Rauner. JB Pritzker summed up the conditions at Illinois public post secondary schools.
State Senator Daniel Biss gave Rauner credit for helping colleges and universities, the ones beyond Illinois' borders.
Pritzker said Illinois needs to fight for more affordable college education, Biss believes tuition should be free.
