Assistant Majority Leader Iris Y. Martinez spoke this week at a rally with charter school advocates, proclaiming her support for all public schools.

“I will fight the fight to make sure that there are adequate dollars going to everyone,” Martinez said. “It’s about equity, and charter schools should not be treated any less than what they are – a public institution.”

The Illinois Network of Charter Schools was at the Capitol today in support of Senate Joint Resolution 64. The resolution, which Martinez cosponsors, calls for a task force to be established to examine charter public schools facilities issues.
