Center For Education And Career Innovation
There are three races for voters throughout Indiana to consider in this year's general election — secretary of state, auditor and treasurer.
INDIANAPOLIS | The State Board of Education postponed the expected release of 2013-14 grades for thousands of Indiana schools Wednesday, instead voting to wait three weeks for five possibly incorrect school ratings to be confirmed.
After nearly four years of one-party rule in Indiana, it seems only fair to examine how the Statehouse club management is doing.
Here's what U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan had to say about the political climate surrounding education issues in our state: "Indiana has some very, very deep dysfunction right now, some fundamental challenges that I hope for the sake of kids that they can work through."
Gary Community School Corp. doesn't have a state-appointed babysitter, exactly, but it does have an Indiana Department of Education staffer, Daniel Bunderidge, on hand to offer more than a mere pat on the back. This arrangement will be worth watching.
In a recent op-ed, State Board of Education member Tony Walker stated, “Indiana is in jeopardy of losing its exemption from No Child Left Behind” because of the change in the superintendent of public instruction in 2013. He further encourages us to believe “the U.S. Department of Education h…

House Republicans stood up for costly duplication of services when they thwarted Democratic leader Scott Pelath's attempt to pull the financial plug on the Center for Education and Career Innovation.
INDIANAPOLIS | Republican Gov. Mike Pence appears eager to claim victory for his 2014 legislative agenda, which emerged relatively unscathed on its first trip through the Republican-controlled House and Senate.
INDIANAPOLIS | House Republicans stood up for a controversial new state agency last week, voting down a proposal by House Democratic Leader Scott Pelath, D-Michigan City, to defund Gov. Mike Pence's Center for Education and Career Innovation.
INDIANAPOLIS | Hoosier lawmakers return to the Statehouse on Tuesday -- postponed from Monday due to snow and extreme cold -- for a 10-week session that's almost certain to garner national attention, put more than $1 billion in local government funding at risk and determine the future of Ind…
In the 38 years I spent at the front of a classroom, I’ve undoubtedly seen this type of behavior before. Not getting what they want, a student chooses to sulk and do everything in their power to disrupt what’s going on around them. It’s expected from grade-schoolers. It’s something else alto…
