CHICAGO (AP) — Democratic Gov. Pat Quinn and Republican Bruce Rauner have attacked one another for their record and positions on education.
Quinn and Rauner met for the first time Friday in the 2014 campaign for Illinois governor. They discussing education policy before members of the Illinois Education Association in Chicago.
Rauner supports non-union charter schools, vouchers and moving public employees from pensions to 401K-style retirement funds.
