Support Education Illinois. Tell the Republicans to Back Individual Choice and Vouchers

From the Illinois Review

The Illinois House of Representatives is considering a key vote right now. Senate Bill 2494 would save thousands of children from Chicago’s worst schools by giving them a voucher allowing them to attend the school of their choice.

This program has been successful in other states, and it won’t cost downstate or suburban schools any money. After years of your tax dollars going to failing schools, this bill will also hold Chicago Public Schools accountable for their performance.

Is your legislator standing with the kids who need help, or with the teachers unions who oppose this bill? Below is a list of undecided legislators.

Call them and tell them to support Senate Bill 2494.

    Yes Elaine,

    That is Ursuline, where Sr. Mary Paul was Superintendent before she moved to Chicago to be the Superintendent of the Archdiocese.

    My Uncle would fill in as Chaplin there after he retired.

  2. Elaine says:

    The school building in the picture looks familiar … is it the former Ursuline Academy in Springfield, now Benedictine University at Springfield (a branch of Benedictine University in Lisle, Ill.?)
    Note that Sen. James Meeks, a Black minister from Chicago, is the chief sponsor of this bill. See what I meant a few weeks ago about him being more Catholic than Fr. Pfleger?

  3. John Powers says:

    Just a call list Diane..there are plenty of Democrats to call as well. The Education Bill crosses party lines.

    JBP

  4. Diane says:

    Hi, John Powers!

    Why are you asking that only Republicans be contacted? Don’t Democrats represent the people too? Shouldn’t Democrats hear from their constituents about school CHOICE too?!?
