Controversial Indiana Senate Bill 167 on education standards dies

https://www.indystar.com/story/news/education/2022/01/14/indiana-education-bill-167-nazi-senate-house-state-legislation-2022/6530374001/

This is the bill that would have tied teachersí hands on what they could teach and how, and would have required them to post lesson plans for every single class for parental approval. Inspired partly by CRT ó which is not a part of any school curricula here ó it would have also made teachers dumb-down the teaching of history and political systems, where everything would be value neutral.

There is a similar bill in the House, but the message, I think, has been sent that if there arenít major changes, that bill will be DOA too when it crosses the hall.

Iím not all that surprised because the pushback on this was fierce, and the GOP could not defend it ó not even its author. But Iím glad to see at least some glimmer of common sense at the Statehouse.
