Illinois Budget Cuts to Hurt Immigrants, Working Families

La Raza, Posted: Jun 17, 2009

CHICAGO -- Proposed budget cuts in Illinois will pose a threat to public education and social programs for children, immigrants and working families, reports La Raza. The budget cuts are expected to be announced July 1, the start of the new fiscal year. Education in Chicago may especially suffer as a result, suggests the news report. English as a Second Language (ESL) and General Educational Development (GED) programs may be cut. The Chicago Public School District expects that 500 teaching jobs and 500 non-classroom related jobs will be cut. More than 400,000 students are enrolled in Chicago Public Schools, 40 percent of whom are Latino.
