Superintendent Ritz talks to educators and parents in Elkhart


Education was the big topic at this week's third house meeting in Elkhart Saturday.  Because Indiana Superintendent of Public Instruction, Glenda Ritz was there to answer your questions.

It was standing room only at the Elkhart Chamber of Commerce as Educators, Parents, and Grandparents showed up to get a chance to speak with Ritz.  Several topics were discussed including core standards, early education, school transportation, safety, and more.  Ritz said her biggest issue is re-doing the accountability system that gives schools grades of A through F.  "So that it is transparent, so that it is more accountable to the individual school.  So I actually want to have in place a system that's going to report out percentage of growth for achievement and percentage of students that actually grow," said Ritz.

Ritz added that she hopes education funding increases in the budget currently being worked on by legislators.
