CHICAGO – CPS CEO Forrest Claypool issued the following statement about HB 4272, the Fund Education First Act:
 
“Chicago Public Schools wants to see our children treated equally, and this bill takes important action to end the pension inequity that penalizes our children and forces Chicago taxpayers to pay twice for teacher pensions. We appreciate that Rep. Mitchell and House Democrats are offering a serious solution to make sure that every child in Illinois is treated equally, no matter where they live.”
