It's a rare opportunity for the Illinois State Senate.

State senators are collectively examining Gov. Blagojevich's plan to shake up education in Illinois. The entire senate will meet March 3 to discuss the governor's plan to eliminate the State Board of Education and replace it with a department under the governor's control.

The hearing will be only the fifth time since 1983 that the entire Senate has convened as a committee, covering issues such as tax increases and riverboat gambling.
