    ‘Lights in the Mirror’ video helps students learn what to do during traffic stop

    Lights in the Mirror The FBI Springfield Division along with Illinois State Police and other law enforcement agencies have produced a 15-minute video titled “Lights in the Mirror” to help students learn what to do during a traffic stop.

    The video is designed to help students understand police procedures as well as the students’ rights during a stop. It highlights important safety considerations when being pulled over on an interstate, in a rural setting or in a city. It also emphasizes citizens’ rights under the Fourth Amendment. The video is intended to be used in a variety of settings, such as driver’s education classes, community forums and student orientation programs.

     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to public schools, Illinois Vision 20/20 is helping to explain what many view as the best path to reforming the state’s outdated school funding system.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.
