Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner appointed Beth Purvis to be his point person on education. She's the CEO of Chicago International Charter School and was a member of Rauner's transition team.
At a meeting of school officials yesterday in Springfield, Purvis fielded questions from the audience.
"Probably the question that everyone has in the room: What will the governor be sharing with us tomorrow as to how he will fund these plans?"
"I don't like to start with a no comment, but to be candid, I don't know."
