FILE - In this Aug. 28, 2013 file photo, Lariyah Beasley, a 4-year-old preschool student from Chicago, holds a sign during a rally outside the Chicago Board of Education headquarters in Chicago. Dozens of protesters, including Lariyah's mother and other parents, students and activists, decried the lack of funding for the city's public school students, especially for African American students. Most of Illinois’ 860 school districts would see severe cuts in funding if the state’s temporary tax increase is rolled back as scheduled, according to a document circulated this week as part of Illinois Democrats’ campaign to preserve the tax hike and push to update the state’s school funding formula. The document cites what would be a total of $450 million in general state aid cuts to schools. (AP Photo/Martha Irvine,File) less
