Harris083017SPRINGFIELD- State Senator Napoleon Harris (D-Harvey) released the following statement following the Senate’s approval of legislation that would provide equity in the way the state funds education:

“This historic vote begins to alleviate the damage caused by an outdated, unfair education funding formula. The legislature came together in a bipartisan manner to reach a compromise that works for all the children of Illinois. Students throughout my district and across the state will now get the resources they desperately need and deserve. I know there is much more work to be done, but this was an important first step in transforming the nation’s poorest funded school system and that’s why I supported this measure.”

Harris081317SPRINGFIELD- State Senator Napoleon Harris (D-Harvey) released the following statement following the override of Governor Bruce Rauner’s veto of legislation that would provide equity in the way the state funds education:

“We are on the brink of enacting historical legislation that would fix the way we fund schools in Illinois. Our state’s inequitable formula has failed the students of our state for decades, and today I voted to change that because I refuse to keep failing.

This measure takes into account the real cost of educating a child and provides a path for providing the proper resources to achieve that goal. Our educators need certainty to plan for and deliver the world class education our students deserve.”
