    Administrators and school board members are releasing a report that outlines a series of policy changes they hope Illinois lawmakers will consider in the next legislative session. Among some of their recommendations are a change to state law that would allow a practicing educator to serve on the state board and recategorizing unfunded mandates as “discretionary”.
