CPS 20% for 20%

Public Education, the Great Equalizer for Children Everywhere—But Not in Chicago

Chicagoans contribute 20 percent of the state income tax, and CPS students make up 20 percent of the state’s enrollment—but CPS students only receive 15 percent of the state’s funding.

The missing 5% is almost $500 million this year alone enough to save teachers and class sizes. For every $1 students across Illinois get, CPS students only get $0.74.
