(SPRINGFIELD) Governor Bruce Rauner has signed a law making it easier to get teachers into Illinois classrooms despite having credentials from outside the state. Yesterday’s action will streamline the process for instructors trained in other states to get credentialed in Illinois with various requirements. Meanwhile, it was announced earlier this week that Illinois school districts will receive about $395 million in additional funding that was approved in the state budget nearly a year ago. The Illinois State Board of Education sent vouchers Thursday to the comptroller’s office to distribute the money to more than 800 school districts, including an extra $60 million to Chicago Public Schools. It’s noted that lawmakers have to increase K-12 spending each year over the next decade for the funding formula to have its maximum effect in Illinois.
