Morris State Senator Sue Rezin is focusing on several education bills during the Spring Legislative Session. One bill focuses on closing the learning gap caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Rezin says having to switch between in-person and remote learning has been hard on students.
Rezin is also working on a bill for students who simply stopped participating in school because of the pandemic.
Rezin says the teacher shortage is the number one crisis facing education. She thinks it should be easier for people to become substitutes.
The legislative session wraps up in April. Sessions have been held remotely due to recent spike in COVID-19 cases. Rezin Represents Plano and other portions of Kendall, Grundy, and LaSalle counties.
