“Choice doesn’t always lead to good outcomes,” says Steve Hinnefeld in his post School Matters: K-12 Education in Indiana. . . . “the bottom line was protected, but the students weren’t” in a Muncie as well as Indianapolis. “Students and their families chose the school. But there was no guarantee the school’s network would choose to do right by them.”
The dark money that poured into Indiana following the Citizens United decision in 2010, has created a radical right super majority in our general assembly that threatens our public education system. Never before in our history have education tax dollars been used to fund not only private schools for the few, but also entrepreneurs interested in money but not learning.
