The Illinois school system is in crisis, and our schools are failing our children.
Chicago public schools have the shortest school day of any major city’s school district with only 6% of their students graduating from college and statewide just 20% of Illinois students will receive a college degree by age 25.
This means hundreds of thousands of students are being handicapped from a successful life.
We can do better for our students.
Join Performance Counts in the fight to improve Illinois schools. Our policy will:
1. Create a system that truly values the teaching profession
2. Protect student learning time during contract negotiations
3. Keep the best teachers in the classroom by making performance a factor in personnel decisions
Stand up for our children. Sign the petition to build better schools in Illinois.
By using performance as a factor in personnel decisions, we can ensure the best teachers remain in the classroom where they belong.
We can, and must, do better for our students.
