Before the clock strikes midnight and we ring in a new year, I wanted to take a minute to personally thank you for your support this past year. Together, we did so much for the children of Illinois.
Today is a great day to take stock of the year and to look ahead to the challenges and opportunities awaiting us in 2019. This year, we took another step toward equitable school funding. We worked to boost early literacy for young students. And we worked with parents to build safer communities and safer schools.
None of this would be possible without folks like you. Your commitment to our state’s children is inspiring, and it’s that support that helps guide our work here at Stand.
As I look to 2019, I look forward to standing with you to further close the gap on inequitable school funding, improving college and career opportunities for Illinois high school students, and helping more kids throughout the state receive the high-quality, relevant education they deserve.
Thank you again for your support this year. Here’s to the New Year and standing up for Illinois kids.
