School funding has finally passed in Illinois, and it took a bipartisan compromise to make it happen. State Senator Andy Manar is applauding the work legislators put in to help change the way schools are funded in Illinois, saying it will change the game for many schools across the state.
Senator Manar says the compromise passed by the legislature and signed into law by Governor Rauner is an example of what compromise looks like.
According to Manar, the new formula will change the game for downstate schools, leading to more certainty when it comes to downstate school's yearly budgets.
