Below is a simple fact sheet about Senate Bill 1, a school funding reform model that passed in both houses of the Legislature but has been threatened with a veto by Gov. Bruce Rauner.

Feel free to download it and share it on social media to help combat the deliberate misinformation campaign being waged by the governor and many Republican legislators. Then call Gov. Rauner's office at 217-782-0244 and tell him to sign Senate Bill 1. If you already called once, call again.

Downstate school districts stand to lose millions of dollars if Illinois' current school funding formula is allowed to continue. That means more cuts to important instructional programs, more staff layoffs and more bad news for our students. Let's put an end to inequity and by enacting Senate Bill 1.
