Five CPS families and the Board of Education are suing to end the State of Illinois’ discrimination against Chicago students.
“I am not sitting idly by as another generation of black boys fall prey to the impact of insufficient opportunity.”
CPS Parent, Plaintiff
“More of our children would find a productive place in this world if they just had the resources they deserve.”
“There’s no good reason why my daughters shouldn’t have access to the resources that families elsewhere in Illinois take for granted.”
“Every child in our neighborhood, our city and our state deserves an equal opportunity to learn and grow. I’m proud to stand with the group that is demanding that fundamental right for our children.”
“Governor Rauner needs to decide if he believes my kids deserve a chance to succeed. Right now, his actions suggest he doesn't.”
Without action in Springfield, our classrooms are at risk.
CPS students make up 20% of the state’s enrollment — yet our students receive only 15% of the state’s total funding.
This video was made in 2016, and while the numbers change every year, the pattern remains the same.
Let Governor Rauner know
it’s time to stop playing politics with
Chicago children’s futures
