A local group calling themselves Citizens for Education, will hold a public meeting Thursday night at 6:30 at the Taylorville High School cafeteria, to continue to focus on changing the current school state aid formula.

Representatives for the Citizens for Education were guests on the WTIM Morning Show as they were represented by Jenny Moats, parent and nurse for Taylorville Community Unit School District #3, and Melisa Livingston, parent and substitute teacher of the district. Moats told the WTIM Morning Show through Superintendent Dr. Gregg Fuerstenau, they have received help from Teresa Ramos of the Funding Illinois Future Coalition.

Livingston stated the purpose of the event is to introduce CFE and their affiliation with Funding Illinois Future. They have also invited two lawmakers in State Representative Avery Bourne (R-Raymond) of the 95th District and State Senator Andy Manar (D-Bunker Hill) of the 48th District to come speak at the event.

Again, that public meeting is Thursday night at 6:30 at the Taylorville High School cafeteria.
