INDIANA (Indiana’s NewsCenter) - As the Democrat walk out enters its second week, Governor Mitch Daniels' Education Reform seem less likely.

Democrats have said, in the past, that private school vouchers, expanding charter schools or stronger rules for the state to take over schools, are not necessary to better educate our children.

State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tony Bennett couldn't disagree more.

Bennett says, “I think it's a shame, it's very sad that the Democrats feel it is an appropriate way to address disagreements. So I see it is the responsibility of our legislators to get back to Indiana, and get back to the business of, working across the aisles to make sure we get education reform in the state passed and implemented.”

And on the issue of making up snow days Bennett went on to say he doesn't care how school districts do it, as long as students have 180 days of instruction.
