Teachers at Chicago Public Schools would be able to live outside the city limits under a measure that won approval today in the state Senate.
Sponsoring Sen. Heather Steans, D-Chicago, said the legislation would expand the hiring pool, perhaps bringing in more quality instructors.
"The quality of the teacher first and foremost really indicates how well that child is going to do," Steans said. "I think making sure that we can draw on the broadest employment pool for teachers in the city is good educational policy."
The measure passed 40-7, with nine voting present.
