June 21, 2009: Advance Illinois

June 22, 2009 11:27:27 AM PDT
Our guests will be former Gov. Jim Edgar and former U.S. Commerce Secretary Bill Daley. They are bi-partisan co-chairs of Advance Illinois, a statewide education advocacy group that held a news conference today to release a new report: "We Can Do Better: Advancing Public Education in Illinois." NewsViews will give Edgar and Daley much more time to explain what the group wants, why the recommendations are so important, how much they will cost, and where the money will come from. Also, what do they see as the consequences if their proposals are not implemented?
