Cover illustration: Cartoonist Mike Thompson illustrates the issue of funding education in Illinois' public schools. Proponents of the proposed amendment to the Illinois Constitution's education article and plaintiffs in the school funding lawsuit filed two years ago point to the wide gap in per pupil spending among school districts. Christopher Wills' article on the proposed amendment begins on page 16. Mark Mathewson's article on the lawsuit begins on page 19.
