Glenda Ritz walloped uber-reformer Tony Bennett in the race for State Superintendent of Indiana schools.
Now the Indiana state board of education is trying to strip her of all powers, thus nullifying her election and the will of the voters. The board wants to protect Bennett’s efforts to privatize public education and to lower standards for teachers and principals.
Please sign this petition to support Glenda. Always be careful on change.org website. Do not sign other petitions to support “great teachers” or you may unwittingly be joining Rhee’s StudentsFirst.
I just signed the petition “Indiana General Assembly: Stop the attempts to dilute the authority of Supt. Glenda Ritz’s office.” and wanted to see if you could help by adding your name.
Our goal is to reach 1,500 signatures and we need more support. You can read more and sign the petition here:
