This issue reports on the Alliance Leadership Summit that brought local education leaders to the Illinois Capitol to open a dialogue with state officials on fulfilling the promise of public education. The summit featured an overview of Vision 20/20 legislative components, advice from a public policy expert, an advocacy expert, and others. It all led to a legislative lobbying effort by more than 600 local school leaders. Also read about school finance referendum questions appearing on April 7 ballots, along with news of IASB's upcoming mandatory board training workshops, and much more.
