Capitol Fax: Harmon recommends hybrid transition to eventual fully elected Chicago school board

We made it to May and share this quick update about an elected school board via CapFax. A new potential possibility is forwarded by Senate President Don Harmon if this finally gets passed if a hybrid board ultimately transitions to a fully-elected school board. It seems whether or not we're ready a change is coming as far as how this city governs a school board.

 The state senate is pushing a hybrid school board consisting of both appointed and elected members. While the state house passed a bill calling for a fully-elected school board. What's going on here is both chambers have to hash out a proposal that will ultimately be signed by Gov. Pritzker and take effect in the near future.

Any educators out there have any thoughts?
