Final Public Hearing on REPA
A packed house was there for public comment on the proposal to lower teacher standards this morning. While a few, well-placed, folks spoke in favor of the proposal, the vast majority of the over 100 folks signed up to speak expressed deep concerns over both the proposal and the undemocratic process that has taken place. The misinformation and misunderstandings persist and it looks like this will move forward even though it was mentioned several times that this type of public outcry has never been seen in Indiana education policy.
