In a press release from Governor Bruce Rauner, quoting from an Associated Press story, it is revealed that the Governor is trying to get rid of a couple of unfunded mandates in order to help offset a property tax freeze.
Of the over 100 mandates on school districts, Rauner targets two sacred cows beloved by gym and driver’s ed teachers:
- offer driver’s education and behind-the-wheel training and
- daily physical education
Rauner is also going after restrictions of privatization of outsourcing for janitorial and transportation services.
