I was wrong. Elected school board bill number was changed.

State Representative Robert Martwick.

After posting about the progress of the House Bill for an elected school board in Chicago, Representative Rob Martwick, chief sponsor of the the bill, wrote to say that the bill number has been changed.

It is now HB557.

It has passed out of the Education Policy and Curriculum Committee.

“I’m very hopeful for a floor vote and passage of this bill,” says Martwick.

You can read his full comments below the previous post.

It then must pass the Senate and get the Governor’s signature.

Perhaps I let my skepticism get the best of me. Suddenly an elected school board for Chicago is everybody’s favorite issue.

I suppose I shouldn’t look a gift horse in mouth.

Maybe I have lived in Illinois too long.

On the other hand it isn’t law yet.
