     Vision 20/20 video makes the case for Evidence-Based Funding model



    EBFM video image As lawmakers and education experts continue to pursue changes to the way money is distributed to public schools, Illinois Vision 20/20 is helping to explain what many view as the best path to reforming the state’s outdated school funding system.

    The Evidence-Based Funding for Student Success model is a centerpiece of the Vision 20/20 blueprint for the future of education in Illinois. The model relies on proven research and would provide funding by aligning resources for practices that have been shown to drive positive student outcomes. Equity would be built in to the formula, while adequacy would be defined based on a new “District Adequacy Target” that utilizes 27 researched-based elements.

    Vision 20/20 has created a short video to explain how the Evidence-Based Model for Student Success would transform Illinois’ school funding formula and create a pathway for the state to invest in student success.
