Chicago Public Schools to host public forums for feedback on school budgeting decisions

CHICAGO (WLS) -- Do you want a say in how much money goes where in Chicago Public Schools? Now is your chance.

CPS is creating a school funding working group to evaluate school budgeting and make recommendations to promote funding equity.

"If we want to fulfill our promise as a city to give every child a quality education and to prove through our schools that we believe in them, it is crucial to listen to communities throughout Chicago who take pride in their neighborhood schools," said Mayor Lori Lightfoot.
