Why Margo McDermed Stands for Children

“Our children hold the key to Illinois’ future.  The most important measure of a state’s health is the care we have for developing and nurturing our children’s minds.  Without successful children nothing else the state tries to do will succeed in the long term.  I want to stand up for Illinois’ children because every well-educated child contributes immeasurably to the well being of all of us here in Illinois.”

-Margo McDermed

Elect Education Champions

Stand for Children’s mission is to ensure that all children, regardless of their background, graduate from high school prepared for, and with access to, a college education.

We work to elect legislators who are deeply committed to improving educational opportunities for children and who put students at the forefront of education policies. We do this through our Illinois Political Action Committee (PAC), which is independent and non-partisan.

We support candidates who believe in these tenets to building better public schools:

  • Every child deserves an education system with funding equity and fairness
  • Every child deserves a 21st century education
  • Every child deserves an excellent teacher
  • Every child deserves high-quality public school options

Stand for Children IL PAC is proud to support Margo McDermed – House District 37.


We believe every child deserves a fair, equitably-funded education system and access to a high-quality public school with excellent teachers who provide a 21st century education. We also believe every parent – regardless of income or education level, can play a fundamental role in their child’s academic success.

That is why we support candidates who are deeply committed to improving educational opportunities for children. The most basic action we can take to improve education is electing legislators who share our priorities.

We are proud to endorse education champions and we encourage you to support them as well. If they are in your district; please give them your vote. If they aren’t, I encourage you to ask your local candidates about their record on education and keep that top of mind as you enter the voting booth.

Be sure you are registered to vote and make sure you remember to cast your ballot.

This back-to-school time is about more than a return to class. It’s also a time to renew our commitment to do all we can to guarantee that our kids receive the education they need to succeed in life.

Please stand with candidates who will boldly and bravely stand for children.
