ISTA Statement on Committee Passage of HB 1134

ISTA President Keith Gambill released the following statement in response to the Senate Education Committee voting to approve HB 1134.

“Hoosier educators, parents, students and others, from a broad cross section of the state, made it clear in testimony and in their conversations with legislators that this bill is not necessary and will divide communities, as well as parent-teacher partnerships.

The foundations of this bill remain grounded on a false narrative that teachers can’t be trusted. ISTA will continue to stand with the vast majority of Hoosiers to defeat this bill.”
