Listening to twisted democratic lies or reading the facts?
No school will get less money even with the significant drop in enrollment in the CPS.
Funding for 8000 students and teachers that don't exist, more in the slush fund.
Better performing schools will only get more funding when taxes are increased, the money for that increased funding was now given to the CPS. That's what the 450 million was for where did you think they were getting it?
Many schools would have gotten double the funding like cicero which is 100% poverty but that money is now gone!
You talking about property tax increase? My understanding is the property tax increase is for CPS pension fund, since no state ballot was given.
No state bailout? What do you think all that money is for? That's what Rauner originally line item veto'd and it's now going to CPS.
There was a website out there maybe also the illinois policy that listed the current and projected increase in fundings for all the school districts based on not sending that money to Chicago. Yes no-one gut a cut (I think for 2 years) but many districts outside of Chicago got large increases which just proved Madigan's influence over the representatives who put his approval over supplying more funds for their OWN district!
I hate to admit it but I'm having a Nancy Pelosi moment we might have to wait until it's all signed to figure out exactly what it is saying.
The cap for CPS funds was lifted but it appears the funding from pensions was moved and it's no longer subject to a tax cap at all???
If you live in Chicago bend over Rahm has already announced there will be another big increase if your in Cook well don't hold your breath there won't be.
I don't think they hired any of the layoff's back and Taxwinkle just gave big raises and bonus out to the union so that money is also spent.
If the soda tax is somehow eliminated your in for a big whammy you can't drive out of to avoid.
You give peace a chance; I'll cover you if it doesn't work out.
