Talking about School Funding

Join us for a free, facilitated community discussion about the complicated issue of school funding – how school funding works and how communities can better advocate for the resources that they need. Come hear your neighbors’ thoughts and share your own on how we should support our schools.

This event is part of our yearlong, statewide series, Continuing Ed., which looks at the future of public education in Illinois.

Light refreshments will be provided. Space is limited, so please register.
