One of the worst school funding systems in the country according to lawmakers on both sides has officially been fixed. Governor Bruce Rauner officially signed Senate Bill 1947, the school funding compromise bill, into law Thursday.
Rauner says his goal since day one has been to make Illinois schools the best in the country.
Taylorville School District Superintendent Dr. Gregg Fuerstenau has been very active in the fight for fair school funding across the state. He says school funding reform has been a long-time coming in Illinois.
Fuerstenau says he expects school districts to start receiving the state aid they are owed very soon.
