050713 js 0065SPRINGFIELD - State Senator Emil Jones III (D-Chicago) met with a group of students on Tuesday from East Palos Elementary School for Tech Day.

The group came to the Capitol to show members of the General Assembly projects they completed during the current school year and advocate to legislators about the importance of funding for education.

“The projects East Palos students presented were absolutely remarkable,” Jones said. “I was truly impressed by these students’ ability to effectively use technology as a tool to give their project more detail and clarity.”

Jones said funding education at an adequate level is a top priority for him and other lawmakers.

“Providing adequate funding for education is unquestionably one of the most important funding issues in our budget.” Jones said. “With advances in technology, we need to ensure that we are giving the next generation the tools to succeed and compete in a growing, technology centered global economy.”
