Amend Indiana Code 20-19-2-2 to require that all 11 members of the Indiana State Board of Education be elected by the citizens of Indiana and not appointed by the Governor.
Why is this important?
Currently, 10 of the 11 members of the Indiana State Board of Education are APPOINTED by the Indiana Governor. Consequently, those positions are being used for overt political purposes. The constituents are not being served by the board. Instead, the Governor and ruling party of the Indiana General Assembly are being represented.
