Bill Aims to Change Chicago School Funding Rules



Illinois legislators will consider changing a law governing how Chicago's public schools get state funds. The new bill comes after a report shows CPS got $235 million more last school year than it would have received if allocations had been calculated as they are for other districts.
 
The proposal would take away Chicago's ability to automatically claim a certain percentage of state education dollars to spend at its own discretion.
