Governor Bruce Rauner promises that schools will open on time this fall… even though education funding has been linked to a funding reform bill that Rauner opposes.

The governor still calls Senate Bill 1 a “bailout” of Chicago schools… but pledges that schools will have the funding they need, and that it won’t be under a formula that benefits one city at the expense of others.

Meanwhile, Rauner is fed up with all the talk about his staff shakeups this week, calling it “baloney” and saying the focus should be on efforts to improve the state and its economy.
