Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner has been taking a victory lap for the new school funding formula at schools across the state. Such visits can be a low-stakes way for the state’s top politicians to interact with their youngest constituents.
Last month, Rauner took questions from several inquisitive students at Galapagos Charter School in Rockford.
Rauner: So do you have any questions for me?
Student: How much do you get paid?
