The findings were discussed at a forum Thursday. Participants included Illinois State Senator James Meeks, who led a boycott of Chicago Public Schools to protest funding disparities between school districts.
There is a problem here in Illinois with school funding, and it has to be fixed. Everybody has to get involved -- the mayor, the governor, aldermen, state representatives, state legislators," Meeks said.
Meeks says he's planning another protest at the Cubs' first home playoff game.
