School Superintendents Want More Funding

WTVO/WQRF - An online survey finds a majority of school district superintendents believe lawmakers are not setting enough money aside for education.

WTVO/WQRF - An online survey finds a majority of school district superintendents believe lawmakers are not setting enough money aside for education.

This comes after a survey called for by Lt. Gov Sheila Simon (D).  It says superintendents believe state funding for education "is poor or in need of improvement."

"This information shows that people on the front line of education are concerned about school funding" says Simon.  "This is an issue that is not going away and deserves our attention."

The office of the Lieutenant Governor is required by state law to conduct a Service Evaluation Survey every year.  It allows districts to provide anonymous feedback about several issues, including policies.

The results of the survey will be released during the P-20 Council's Joint Education Leadership Committee meeting in Chicago.
