Statewide update—April 7, 2011

Chicago TribuneEditorial: Extend Chicago school day and year, “Chicago greatly cheats its students by having one of the shortest school days (about five hours) and years (170 days) of any major school system in the nation. That’s by virtue of the teachers contract and a waiver for Chicago from state law.”

  • State Journal RegisterWitnesses tell redistricting panel to keep counties together, “Dennis Fisher told the Illinois Senate Redistricting Committee Wednesday that people in Shelby County, where he lives, have a problem. They have too much representation. Fisher said the small south-central county (it has 33 precincts) is divided among four state representative districts, three state Senate districts and two congressional districts.”
