manar floor 052120SPRINGFIELD – To provide the public with an update on the progress made by the Illinois Commission on Equitable Early Childhood Education & Care Funding, State Senator Andy Manar (D-Bunker Hill) is holding a joint hearing of the Senate Appropriations II and Education Committees.

“Since Governor Pritzker announced the formation of the Illinois Commission on Equitable Early Childhood Education & Care Funding in December of 2019, the world has fundamentally changed,” said Manar, who serves as a co-chair of the commission. “What has not changed is the commission’s resolve to improve access to a quality education for every child in our state. The current system only works for some, and it’s our responsibility to construct a system that serves working families, bridges inequities forged by decades of negligence, and affords opportunity for all. By following the commission’s recommendations and building on them, I believe we can transform the way we fund early childhood education for the better.”
