Even though they’re in charge of entire school districts, school superintendents in the Illinois Valley took advantage of the chance to be the ones learning Monday morning.

At a roundtable meeting in Morris , State Senator Sue Rezin and educational leaders met with Tony Smith, the State Superintendent of Education. Rezin said some of the challenges that were constantly mentioned were school funding and over testing. She explained some of the challenges she faces as a legislator:
