Skoog against plan for state takeover of Chicago schools

Posted by wlpo on February 12, 2016

So do you think the state should “bail out” the Chicago Public School system? You’re new state representative says no.

Governor Bruce Rauner wants the state to take over the failing district and let CPS file for bankruptcy. Democrat State Rep. Andy Skoog says that idea is a mistake. Skoog says he’ll vote against the governor’s plan because the taxpayers he represents “shouldn’t be on the hook for Chicago’s decades of mismanagement”.

Skoog goes on to say that it’s ridiculous to have Illinois Valley taxpayers’ bailout Chicago when bills at the La Salle Veteran’s Home are not being paid and college students are trying to figure out if they’ll be able to afford their next semester classes.
