Illinois DREAM Act
The city is holding two days of training for CPS guidance counselors, college advisers, and other employees about the Illinois DREAM Act, scholarship programs, and other initiatives for young immigrants.
Two months after the Illinois DREAM Act passed the General Assembly, Gov. Pat Quinn is expected to sign it into law Monday.
The children of immigrants, both legal and illegal, would be able to obtain private college scholarships and enroll in state savings programs under legislation approved Monday.
