  • About Us

    ​The Illinois P-20 Council was established by the legislature in 2009 to foster collaboration among state agencies, education institutions, local schools, community groups, employers, taxpayers, and families, and to collectively identify needed reforms to develop a seamless and sustainable statewide system of quality education and support. The "P" in our name represents Preschool and "20" stands for grade 20, education after college.

  • Join a working group!

    In the fall of 2022, the P-20 Council launched two new project-based working groups (PBWGs) . Each group will spend several months working on developing recommendations to address specific issues within the field. The first two PBWGs are focused on Strengthening the Teacher Pipeline and Scaling K-12 Computer Science. Interested in joining one of our  working groups?
