CHICAGO (INCS ACTION)—Making its debut in Chicago politics, INCS Action will be supporting mayoral and aldermanic hopefuls committed to implementing public education polices that put children and families first.

“The stakes couldn’t be higher for urban public education,” said Andrew Broy, president of INCS Action, the sister agency of the Illinois Network of Charter Schools (INCS). “Through INCS Action, we will accelerate efforts to support candidates who exhibit leadership on high-quality education choice and demonstrate a pathway to victory,” he said.

INCS Action has been politically active in state elections since 2014, and an active participant in the 2018 state legislative primary cycle where 13 of 15 candidates it endorsed won.

“The charter public school community has built up its political muscle at the state level,” said Broy. “With a current seven-figure PAC balance and a focus on candidates who are committed to sound education policy, INCS Action will serve as a counterweight to organizations that put political interests ahead of student and family demand for higher-quality education.”

Mayors have deep influence in confronting educational challenges and policies, Broy said, applauding Chicago mayoral and aldermanic candidates who are committed to addressing public education policies that put children first.
