When the State Board of Education met last week at Purdue, half of the members were new. 

That’s because legislation the General Assembly passed this year allowed the governor and legislative leaders to immediately reconfigure the board.

As StateImpact Indiana’s Claire McInerny reports, officials are hopeful this will improve the dynamic of the board and put an end to years of infighting.
