Public Schools

Public schools and public school teachers have been under attack in recent years—from widespread efforts to shift public school funding to private school voucher programs, to privatization attempts, to statehouse efforts to eliminate bargaining rights for teachers and school personnel.

The IFT has always believed that to be equipped for life, every child should have access to a high-quality pubic education—from early childhood through college. We strive to strengthen education and public schools education in Illinois by ensuring educators have the resources support and services they need to provide the excellent education all kids deserve.
