From the press release: “Our children deserve equal treatment. Since 2009, CPS has accounted for nearly 20 percent of state enrollment,” Claypool said. “If we simply got our fair share – 20 percent of funding – we would receive an additional $458 million this fiscal year alone, eliminating the budget gap that is threatening to derail our school year.” Read the full release with CEO Forrest Claypool's speech here. CPS is encouraging stakeholders to take action, and additional parent advocacy resources can be found at IL Raise Your Hand. Read Principal Crespo's post about the budget crisis here.
