Some state senators oppose the governor's plan to take over the State Board of Education.
The Illinois Senate Black Caucus says Gov. Blagojevich's plan fails to find better ways to fund Illinois schools, and it won't help boost test scores for black and low-income students.
In Blagojevichs' State of the State address, he called on lawmakers to overhaul the board and create a new Department of Education under his control.
The state Senate is scheduled to meet and discuss the governor's proposal.
