    EFAB to meet and make recommendation!

    3/8/2005


    According to a recently published report, the Governor appointed new members to the Education Funding Advisory Board (EFAB) on Monday. The panel is set to meet on Wednesday March 9 at 7:00 p.m. in Springfield and again on Friday March 18 in Chicago.

    According to the State Board of Education's website, the two meetings include a "Board Orientation," "Public Participation" and "Discussion of Draft Recommendation."

    Given the speedy timeline and orientation, Wednesday’s (TOMORROW) session provides the best opportunity for public input before discussion of the “draft recommendation.”
