Conference videos

Six videos recorded and produced by the IllinoisChannel during the 2016 Joint Annual Conference are now available online, providing background information on significant issues facing Illinois schools.

Videos on the struggle to fund education, Medicaid, and pensions without a budget and an interview about school safety in the 21st Century were posted in early December.

Other Conference videos posted more recently include: School Safety and Social Media in the 21st Century; Issues in Education: School Safety, Teacher Shortages, and Funding; Political Challenges to Reforming the School Funding Formula; and an interview with Superintendent Greg Goins on Education and Technology.

The Illinois Channel is a 501 c (3) nonprofit corporation, modeled after C-SPAN, which produces video programming on state government, politics, and public policy. It develops original programming for broadcast by cable access channels across the state on its website, and the YouTube channel.
