IFT President Dan Montgomery Responds to State of the State Address

Following Governor Quinn's State of the State address earlier today, IFT President Dan Montgomery responded with the following statement.
"The Governor's claim that the choice is pensions-or-pencils is deeply unfair. We must work together to adequately fund public education and solve the state’s funding crisis. Teachers and other education professionals share no fault in the problem but are willing to share in the sacrifice, and to simply balance the budget on their backs is wrong. Finding a fair and constitutional solution will take courage from everyone involved, including the Governor."
