Where Rauner And Pritzker Stand On Education

WBEZ and Chalkbeat Chicago did in-depth interviews with Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner and his Democratic challenger in the Nov. 6 election JB Pritzker on where they stand on education issues.

That one-hour special ― Testing the Candidates ― aired on Oct. 3 during Morning Edition.

In it, Rauner and Pritzker explained their positions on school choice, charter schools, pre-school education, teacher pay, university students leaving the state and much more.

Morning Shift checks in with the two journalists who tested the candidates about what a second term for Rauner or a first term for Pritzker would mean for education in Illinois.

GUESTS: Kate Grossman, WBEZ senior education editor

Cassie Walker Burke, Chalkbeat Chicago bureau chief
