Money from outside the state flooded Indiana in 2011 after the disastrous 2010 ruling in Citizens United. Hoosiers have had a supermajority of one party rule ever since, and that party has been busy diverting money away from public to private schools. As a counter balance to this, the Indiana Coalition for Public Education (ICPE) was formed. One of their features is a report card on how our state politicians voted.
Since ICPE primarily focuses on issues relating to privatizing public schools, the organization based its report card on “nine bills in the 2019 and 2020 legislative sessions that diverted taxpayers’ money away from public schools, damaged public control of education, or either supported or harmed public education.” Legislators seeking re-election are graded here.
