Illinois State Representatives Linda Chapa LaVia (D-Aurora) and Kimberly du Buclet (D-Chicago) took questions from dozens of IMSA students during the Legislative Panel on Education Reform, hosted by IMSA and presented by the Student Committee for IMSA Advancement (SCIA) and Peer Multicultural Educators (PME).
More than 40 enthusiastic and anxious students lined up to ask questions during the event, attended by 115 staff and students.
"We welcome IMSA champions Rep. Chapa LaVia and Rep. du Buclet to our campus and are so fortunate that students have the opportunity to discuss with them the important issues facing Illinois lawmakers such as education reform," McGee said. "This is another example of the real-world, unique educational experiences provided to our students, and also gives legislators who visit the opportunity to hear student voices and ideas on critical issues of the day."
