Business leaders call for more early education funding

( KTRS ) Illinois business leaders say they want the state to invest more money in early education to meet the demands of a growing job market centered on math and science.

Business leaders says they support Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner’s plan to increase preschool funding to about $393 million, an increase of $75 million from last year.

Supporters predict there could be up to 37,000 science and technology jobs in Illinois by 2020.
