Ken Davis is joined by Rod Estvan, Policy Director at Access Living Chicago. They discuss financing for the Chicago Public Schools from a historical perspective, along with present-day issues such as yesterday’s postponement of an $875-million bond issue, a possible cash infusion from surplus TIF money, a legislative initiative to restructure the way all Illinois schools are financed, and the impact of the fiscal crisis on special-education students and their families. This program was produced by Chicago Access Network Television (CAN TV).
