David Kolbe’s recent endorsement from Superintendent Glenda Ritz should raise concerns for voters who care about local control of education. Against the wishes of parents and teachers, Superintendent Ritz has continued to implement Common Core standards in our schools.
Under pressure from her fellow Democrats at the United States Department of Education, Ritz has deceived Hoosiers by rebranding the Common Core Standards as Indiana’s own, and by refusing to implement legislation passed which calls for new Hoosier standards. Her office has advised Indiana school systems they should keep on using the same Common Core materials which alarmed parents in the first place.
We urge a vote for Curt Nisly in House District 22.
We believe Nisly will back the reform effort to support the needs of parents and teachers in each local community, and will work to keep education policy far removed from the regulators in Washington, D.C.
