Budget impasse imperils CNA programs - VALERIE WELLS, Herald and Review

Rocki Wilkerson, director of the adult education department for Decatur schools, said she's worried that this might be the last class of certified nurse assistants for the foreseeable future, unless funding is restored quickly.

However, adult education falls under the Illinois Community College Board's oversight, as postsecondary education. http://herald-review.com/news/local/education/budget-impasse-imperils-cna-programs/article_93e3d494-f91b-5e84-82ee-b152562da5f1.html
