ABSTRACT
The article discusses public education in light of the current economic and political situation. Reforms for the sake of increasing efficiency and cost effectivity, many proposals were being pushed in Legislature that would decrease the voice of educators, endangering their tenure, and threatening the quality of public education. The Illinois Federation of Teachers opposed these reforms and aim to rally other concerned groups to find better solutions instead of budget cuts.
