SB1 is a bad school funding bill and that’s not crazy talk.

If I write about pension theft in Illinois someone inevitably will tell me that all I ever talk about is pensions and I’m selfish and I don’t care about the needs of others.
Of course,  the current attack on pensions is not directed at folks like me who are already retired, but at current active state employees.
Damn, I can be such a jerk.
If I write about Senate Bill 1, a school funding bill that eliminates direct funding for students with special needs in Illinois, I get accused of talking crazy and besides, I don’t personally have kids in Chicago schools anymore and this is the only chance to get money for CPS and I am being selfish.
See how that works, I am such a jerk.
I am told that opposing SB1/HB2808 is crazy talk.
The thing is that SB1, now being considered in the Illinois House as HB 2808, is a bad bill that increases funding for some Illinois school districts at the expense of support for children with special needs and for special education students.
There I go again, being selfish.
Senate Bill 1 would provide funds for just one position for every 141 Pre-K children with disabilities.
It would  provide for just one position for every 141 K-12 general education SB1 is a bad school funding bill and that’s not crazy talk. | Fred Klonsky:
