Education funding in the state of Illinois relies to heavily on property taxes which not only creates a burden for Illinois families but also creates inequitable education funding in the state. I believe that the state needs to invest more in education to make sure that every child receives a fair and quality education.

Higher Education:

As a retired professor, I know the importance of higher education funding. I will work to make sure that a budget impasse which heavily affected higher education never happens again in the state of Illinois.

Without proper funding, Illinois schools lack the resources to stay competitive to attract out-of-state students and to recruit students in-state as well.  

I also believe that education should be affordable and attainable to all.


Access Bill:

Paul supports the Access Bill (HB2394) which is co-sponsored by members of both parties including former IL-70th Representative, Bob Pritchard. This bill provides equal access for students to apply for scholarships and does not require any additional funding from the state.
