School officials in Streator plead their case in Springfield

Posted by wlpo on May 14, 2014

Want to get noticed? Do what teachers and administrators of Streator Elementary School District did.

The group marched Tuesday in front of the state capit0l building holding signs saying things like “Streator Kids Are Depending On You”. The elementary district closed one school and cut 20 teachers in the last two years and decision makers put most of the blame on dwindling state funding.

The protestors were able to meet with State Senator Sue Rezin and State Representative Frank Mautino while in Springfield.
