Action Needed

Stop Gov. Rauner's Takeover of Chicago Public Schools

Working Families of Southern Illinois,

You can still voice your opposition to Governor Rauner's plans for a state takeover of the Chicago public school system by signing my petition, which states our belief that our education funding should go to local schools. Please visit and sign the online petition to stop Governor Rauner.

In Protect Illinois Committee's opinion, the Governor's proposed takeover could give handouts at the expense of our schools to the Chicago system and the bureaucrats who run it. Together we can let Gov. Rauner know that when it comes to investing in our future, Southern Illinois students come first. We will not stand by quietly while our money is spent on a power play by the Governor.

Thank you for your help,

Committee to Protect Illinois Families
