I would hazard that the teachers and unions have a different reason than the parents.

What in the he## does that matter? A killer is on the loose. Don't know about you, but I'd rather see a murderer in custody than see a 12-year old sneaking out at night...

I don't care if the unions and democrats support the measure or not, parents should have a say as to whether their children take the tests. They're their children not the state's.

Quinn, industry urged to speed lock-and-dam fixes

New federal program available that could speed needed repairs

Members of Illinois' congressional delegation are urging Gov. Pat Quinn and industry to pursue public-private partnerships to fix the state's aging locks and dams.

U.S. Sens. Dick Durbin and Mark Kirk, and Reps. Cheri Bustos and Rodney Davis sent Quinn a letter Tuesday urging him to coordinate with industry to take advantage of a new federal program that could speed needed repairs.

They say states could bypass the sometimes-slow U.S. Army Corps of Engineers planning, design, and construction process. Communities instead could develop "innovative financing structures" that include private funding and construction.

They say members of the agriculture, mining, and shipping industries should be involved in the effort to repair locks and dams on the Mississippi and Illinois rivers, which are used to move millions of tons of goods annually.
