Supt: Ill. K-12 School Funding Crisis At Tipping Point
By Willis Kern
State school officials are sounding the alarm over inadequate state funding for Kindergarten through 12th grade.

Add to this, late payments to schools, the ambiguity of pension costs, and a 5-percent cut in federal funding due to sequestration and the situation seems worse than bleak. Illinois Public Radio's Willis Kern talks about the problem with State School Superintendent Christopher Koch.
