In Illinois, students living in low-wealth school districts receive only $0.81 for every dollar spent on students living in high wealth districts. The result is the kids needing the most receive the least aid from the state.
Because of these funding disparities, Chicago Public Schools is contemplating a 39% cut across the board for all schools. These cuts will no doubt negatively affect Catalyst Circle Rock and Catalyst Maria Charter Schools by increasing class sizes and eliminating student supports and programs.
The scholars, staff, families and school communities have worked too hard to provide our scholars with the best education possible to allow more budget cuts to undo this progress.
