Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA)
ESEA was a landmark bill when it was signed into law in 1965. ESEA was intended to ensure that every child, regardless of race, gender, or ZIP code, receives the education that they deserve.
For years, funding shortfalls and budget hurdles have been the norm rather than the exception for Chicago Public Schools (CPS). A pension crisis, a state budget impasse that remains a sticking point, and shortfalls elsewhere have meant a budget crunch nearly every year in recent memory.
Elect Education Champions
We work to elect legislators who are deeply committed to improving educational opportunities for children and who put students at the forefront of education policies. We do this through our Illinois Political Action Committee (PAC), which is independent and non-partisan.
