To the Editor:

The bottom line is very discouraging concerning the political tug-of-war over public school funding in the Land of Lincoln.

I sincerely would like to emphatically remind Mr. Mike Madigan, Gov. Bruce Rauner and the entire Illinois legislature that the future progress and success of our state, nation and world is dictated by the overall quality of our educational system.

Legislators, please do not make these innocent children pawns in this political chess game.

David R. Marco, Joliet
