Illinois Kids Won't Go Back to School

Governor Pritzker announced yesterday that all schools in Illinois will remain closed through the remainder of this school year.

He said that he considered the many downsides of closing in-person instruction for Illinois’ children but said in the end it came down to how many lives could be saved by limiting physical contact until there’s a vaccine and effective treatment.

Pritzker also saluted teachers, parents and students going through this difficult time and encouraged teachers to take the challenges in dealing with COVID-19 and these difficult times into account with their grades. He also pledged continued support and resources for districts serving low-income students.

The governor noted that this does not necessarily mean that the stay at home order will be extended and that they are evaluating that on a day-by-day basis… it is still in effect through April 30th.
