Welcome to the Education Issues Team

We are focusing on protecting public education from the disastrous leadership of the unqualified and unethical Secretary of Education DeVos. We need to be vigilant at the federal, as well as the state, level to protect our public education.

Currently, we are focused on educational issues including but not limited to…

  • Defending the Department of Education’s support of public schools
  • Supporting public school funding and fighting the draining of public school funds into charter schools and voucher programs
  • Protecting Title I funding and free and reduced lunch programs for low-income students
  • Protecting rights of LGBTQ students in public schools
  • Protecting the rights of students from immigrant families to a free public education
  • Protecting schools from gun violence and legislation allowing guns in schools
  • Protecting the progress that has been made in education in Illinois
  • Supporting efforts to reform standardized-testing accountability models for teachers
  • Defending the rights of students of all ability levels
