House Sponsor Jonathan Carroll Votes to Support Educator Presence on State Board of Education

https://ift.tt/2Tzbj32

State Rep. Jonathan Carroll, D-Buffalo Grove, voted last week to override Gov. Bruce Rauner’s veto of a bill ensuring more educators have a seat on the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE).

“One of the biggest problems in education is that policymakers write laws without teacher input,” Carroll said. “As a teacher, I believe ISBE needs to include educators on the board so teachers’ perspectives aren’t ignored.”

Carroll voted to enact House Bill 4284, which in addition to requiring the appointment of educators to ISBE, also sets the necessary qualifications for appointees. The legislation would not allow more than one member employed by the same school district to serve on ISBE. The bill received bipartisan support in the House but was blocked by Rauner’s veto. Carroll joined a bipartisan group of lawmakers to override the veto.

“The education system only works when policymakers, administrators, and teachers are all on the same page,” Carroll said. “This bill makes sure that teachers with real-world experience have a seat at the table.”
