20% for 20%
Equal Funding for Chicago Students
OUR STUDENTS NEED YOUR VOICE!
Without action in Springfield, our classrooms are at risk. CPS students make up 20% of the state’s enrollment, Chicagoans contribute 20% of the state income tax - yet our students receive only 15% of the state’s
total funding. The missing 5% is nearly $500 million this year
alone -- enough to save our teachers and class sizes.
