Governor Rod Blagojevich championed his plan to eliminate the State Board of Education today at the annual meeting of a teacher's union in the Chicago suburbs.

Blagojevich told more than 1100 delegates gathered at a hotel in Rosemont that he's willing to be held accountable for the education of Illinois students.

The governor wants to dissolve the independent State Board of
Education and replace it with a state agency that would report to him.

Illinois Education Association spokesman Charles McBarron says Blagojevich's plan will give the union more input on the state school system.
