The State Legislature is looking at changing how Illinois funds its schools. When considering potential changes to the state’s school funding system, what is most important to you?
Reducing how much I pay in property taxes, even if that means giving up some local control.
Maintaining educational excellence in our schools, even if that means I continue to pay higher property taxes.
Increasing equitability of state funding for all Illinois schools, even if it means suburban property owners may pay more than residents in communities with lower real estate values.
I don't want any redistribution of the current state funding, even if that means that additional state funding will be directed to schools in lower-income communities before funding to suburban schools is increased.
I want to ensure special education and transportation funding are seperate from the general funding formula, to ensure funding for special services remains earmarked and adequate.
Which one of these issues is the top concern of you and your family?
Property tax obligations
Cost of health care
Saving for retirement
Quality K-12 education
Crime and safety concerns
