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.
