peters esbSPRINGFIELD – After the Illinois Senate voted on a historic measure to transition Chicago Public Schools to an elected school board, State Senator Robert Peters (D-Chicago) issued the following statement:

“The legislation we passed today is a testament to the hard work done by grassroots organizations made up of parents, students, teachers and communities members, who have spent over a decade fighting for what is best for their communities.

“While I would have preferred a fully elected school board to be implemented immediately, this gradual transition is a step in the right direction. I look forward to the day when the school board truly represents the interests of the people it serves.”
