I post this today because action must be taken. Illinois Republican Governor Bruce Rauner has not yet passed a workable budget for Illinois and specifically Chicago Public Schools. If a budget is not passed by early November public education in the city will be negatively impacted in ways that directly impact what and how our children will learn, teachers will lose their jobs and special education will be all but eliminated.
Principal Tim Devine of CPS high school Walter Payton speaks much more eloquently than I below is his open letter to the his students and teachers to take action now. Please read below and contact your representatives now. It is important to make our voices heard now.
