Education

  This year we focused on Creating a Position on Higher Education Funding:


  DRAFT Position:


 The Central Kane County League supports sustained allocation of state funds for public higher education that will provide

   quality postsecondary programs throughout the state.  Objectives for adequate public funding should be to:

     Attract, maintain, and retain quality teaching staff
     Eliminate and prohibit barriers to funding higher education: constitutional, statutory, and regulatory
     Invest in capital construction and long-term maintenance of higher education facilities

In addition, the League supports sustained funding to attract, support, and retain qualified Kane County students through:

    State-funded, need-based financial aid
    State-funded merit-based scholarships
    State-funded research grants
    State-subsidized internships



   And we hosted a public forum concerning Evidence-Based Funding for Education
