What is your position on charter schools?

Education

I support a moratorium on charter school expansion. There is enough work to do to bring the existing charters up to acceptable educational standards.

I support charter schools.

I am support a moratorium on the expansion of charter schools as it diverts money away from traditional public education. Our priority should be to improve the charter and traditional schools we already have then fix our public education funding.

Charters schools should not be in competition with public schools for state funding period. D o not open up a charter school if you cannot exist without state funding. We must place a cap on the number of charter schools in Illinois.

I strongly support charter schools. Students don't deserve to be trapped in a failing school. They have the right to a great education just like students in communities with strong public schools. As governor, we made a historic reform of achieving parity for charter school funding with public schools for the first time ever.

Opposed. All public funds should go to improve public education.

Charter schools should be one of the many choices that parents have when looking for schools that best meet the individual needs of their child. But choice for families shouldn't be limited to just charters. Money should follow the child in Illinois whether it's for a public, private, charter or virtual school. As I said before, I'll champion school choice for each and every kid in Illinois.

I support a moratorium on charter schools because I do not believe that we should open new charter schools while closing public schools, and because neighborhood public schools are crucial anchors of their communities. As for existing charter schools, we must shut them down if they don't meet performance standards and strongly support organizing drives for teachers to ensure that charter schools do not function as union-busting institutions.
