I'm an ESL teacher of adult students and I see the huge impact those classes have on their daily lives and preparation for living wage jobs.

Please pass more funding for the University of Illinois UC so that we do not lose our talented faculty in bioengineering, medical research, physics, plant science to the private Eastern schools who are recruiting our finest faculty. The new bio medical/engineering degree will produce top graduates. We need an outstanding faculty to
facilitate it.

It is unconscionable that our legislators and governor are getting paid but not doing their jobs, which is to pass a budget. Compromise is part of your responsibility. We at the university ARE doing our jobs, yet our pensions, healthcare, and jobs are at risk due to this inaction by our elective officials. SHAME on our legislators and governor! Public education is vital to our democracy.
