We hear today from Vandalia Superintendent of Schools Dr. Jennifer Garrison, who was named earlier this week to the Education Transition team for Governor-elect J. B. Pritzker. Dr. Garrison says being named to the team was a pleasant surprise.
And, Dr. Garrison says the team will get in their first meeting this week.
Dr. Garrison has been one of the Superintendents on the front lines for several years, working for equal funding for schools. And, in that fight, has worked closely with State Senator Andy Manar, who is one of the committee chairs.
