Quinn’s education cuts darken gloomy forecast for local school districts
SYCAMORE – A more than $400 million cut to education to solve a $97 billion pension shortfall is an equation that does not add up for Luke Glowiak.
Glowiak, assistant superintendent for business at Sycamore School District 427, said Gov. Pat Quinn’s call for cuts to elementary, secondary and higher education during his budget address Wednesday shows the governor has missed the point on solving the pension problem.
Instead of investing in education, Glowiak said Quinn is holding it ransom to force action on pension reform, which should be considered a separate issue.
