Although SB 167 has been pulled, a grave threat remains to Indiana schools, students and teachers alike. House Bill 1134, which passed out of the education committee with a “do pass” recommendation, is functionally identical to SB 167. Its passage out of committee means that teachers, school workers, students, families, administrators, and community members must organize rapidly to defeat the bill. Its passage would cause a massive worker exodus from a sector already suffering heavily from worker shortages, a death knell for public education.
