Sen. Manar Discusses What Schools Can Expect for Funding in Wake of Coronavirus

The state of Illinois is going to work through a big budget hole over the next few years due to the economic fallout of COIVD 19. So where do you cut? 


The state passed equity-based school funding in 2017 with the help of Democrat State Senator Andy Manar. He says budgets will be strapped but now is not the time to undo the work done in getting poorer school districts more money.



Manar says he still wants to see more money pushed to education but understands how hard that will be given the economic outlook in Illinois.
