(Springfield, IL)-(Effingham Radio)- J.B. Pritzker says he wants to send thousand of Illinois school kids back to the public schools that their parents wanted out of.
The Democratic governor candidate yesterday told a group of teachers in Springfield that he will dismantle Illinois’ new tax credit scholarship program.
The program allows people to donate money to provide a scholarship for students to leave traditional public schools.
The response across Illinois to the scholarships has been overwhelming.
Pritzker told the teachers he wants to build a better public education system.
