Pritzker signs education overhaul pushed by Illinois Legislative Black Caucus
Gov. JB Pritzker on Monday signed the second pillar of the Illinois Legislative Black Caucus’ agenda from the January lame duck session, kickstarting an overhaul aimed at improving equity and eliminating systemic racism in the state’s education system.
Joined by members of the Black Caucus for an in-person bill signing at Proviso East High School in Maywood, Pritzker said the passage and his signature of HB 2170 align with his personal history of supporting improvements to education, including early childhood education, in Illinois.
