April 5 Education Town Hall: Your Questions Answered
On April 5, State Senator John Curran (R-Downers Grove) partnered with State Representative David S. Olsen (R-Downers Grove) and the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) to host an Education Town Hall. The meeting provided an overview of the standardized assessments currently used in Illinois public schools and then opened the floor up to a question and answer session.
Due to time constraints, the Town Hall concluded before all questions could be addressed, but the senator asked the attendees to submit their questions to receive a follow-up response.
"We heard so many thorough and thoughtful questions from parents and educators at the Town Hall, and we wanted to make sure those questions were answered," Curran. "ISBE has provided full responses that I think would benefit anyone who has a student or works with students in the public school system."
