 If the State Board of Education passes the IDOE's proposed changes to the high school diploma, Indiana's students won't meet the minimum college entrance requirements. Students may lose the chance to take World History, or learn a second language, or take classes in music or art since these courses will no longer be required. Instead, Indiana's students will be encouraged to work at jobs outside of school to meet graduation requirements.

Watch this video to learn how reinstating full bargaining rights for Indiana's teachers will help turn around the state's growing teacher shortage and make stronger, healthier, and more successful public schools for all Hoosier children: teacher working conditions are student learning conditions! 

Watch this video narrated by an FWEA member and outstanding elementary teacher - thanks, Jessica!
