Education roundtableLast month, Senator Bertino-Tarrant hosted two roundtable events in the 49th district.  The first roundtable event brought together superintendents from Will and Kendall counties in an effort to identify concerns related to mandates, training and how to best utilize their resources without receipt of adequate education funding from the state.  The group brainstormed for over two hours on ways to work more effectively and efficiently with the limited resources that they have.   Senator Bertino-Tarrant hopes to work in the upcoming legislative session to address some of the concerns of the group, in an effort to help all schools make the best use of their time, funding, directives and continuing education.
