Protecting Funding for our Children’s Education
Illinois has the second-most unfair school funding system in the country, where wealthy districts receive more while our students are shortchanged. Brandon fought efforts to give a bailout to Chicago schools, which would have taken millions of dollars of funding from our children’s education. Brandon supported a budget for our schools that increased funding for every school district. Brandon also supports increasing taxes on millionaires to make school funding more faire and ensure that every school in Southern Illinois receives its fair share.
