Illinois has one of the most inequitable education funding systems in the country. Some school districts spend $6,000 per pupil, while others spend $30,000. This disparity is largely driven by ZIP code. We need to make sure that all Illinois students attend schools that are adequately resourced so that our children all have the opportunities they deserve.
