Tuesday, September 20th, at 9am, at the Union League Club, 65 W. Jackson, State Superintendent of Education Tony Smith, along with Rep. Will Davis (D-30), Sen. Toi Hutchinson (D-40), Sen. Kimberly Lightford (D-4), Sen. Karen McConnaughay (D-33), and Rep. Robert Pritchard (R-70), will speak at the Center for Tax and Budget Accountability's Annual Symposium.

The topic: How the state can change its inefficient, inequitable education funding system to give Illinois schools the resources they need to be successful--even in the context of profound budget uncertainty.

Underscoring the importance of this question to the broader state economy, CTBA will release a report at the Symposium: "The Value Propositions Associated With Funding Research-Based K-12 Education Practices."
