Illinois' education chief says the state hasn't provided enough money to institute a new education reform law that's been praised nationwide.
Gov. Pat Quinn signed into law last month legislation that makes it harder for teachers to strike and easier for districts to fire them, among other things. The bill had support from unions and advocacy groups.
The Department of Children and Family Services had taken the position it could maintain current cases but did not have to send new children to the not-for-profit group. Both sides agreed Monday that new cases will be referred.
