SPRINGFIELD, Ill. — Illinois governor-elect Bruce Rauner has made it clear schools are his top priority.

Broy told Illinois Watchdog Radio’s Benjamin Yount that Rauner has always been an ally of charter schools, but Broy says what he hears from the newly elected governor provides the most hope in years.
