WASHINGTON (Indiana’s NewsCenter) - Indiana's attempt to reform education is getting attention in the nation's capitol.
Indiana State Superintendent Dr. Tony Bennett testified before a House committee on Thursday about the state's measure to revamp the teacher licensing system and giving parents more control of their child's education.
He also mentions that parents of under performing schools can request intervention from the state which would allow the state to come in and bring the school within the state's accountability law.
Bennett's testimony comes the same day Indiana lawmakers in the Senate began work on a bill that would tie a teacher's pay to student performance.
Under the bill that is being considered school districts would create their own evaluation systems but would have to include objective measures of student achievement.
