ISTA statement on historic Red For Ed Action Day

ISTA President Keith Gambill released the following statement following Tuesday’s Red For Ed Action Day at the Indiana Statehouse.

“ISTA’s Red For Ed Action Day will go down in history as a significant turning point for public education in Indiana. Twenty-thousand educators, parents and community members rallied for investing the budget surplus in teacher compensation, holding students, teachers and communities harmless from ILEARN and repealing the unnecessary PGP/externship requirements for teachers.

Today also demonstrated that teachers are united behind a message of enough, is enough.

Although legislators didn’t take action today, we will be watching in January for bold action for our students. ISTA is just getting started and our members will not stop fighting for their students and profession.”
