A Marion County judge is allowing a lawsuit involving a dispute between state superintendent Glenda Ritz and the State Board of Education to move forward.
The judge Tuesday denied the Attorney General’s request to dismiss the lawsuit filed by four residents against the State Board of Education.
The issue at the center of the lawsuit is whether State Board of Education members violated the state’s open meeting law when they decided via email to send a legislative leaders a letter, asking them to intervene in how school’s A-F grades were being calculated.
A preschool classroom can be overwhelming. Take one at Bloomington Montessori for example.
There’s a few dozen students scattered around the room, each doing a different activity. One child is painting on an easel, two boys are building and knocking down a tower of blocks, and a girl is pouring water from one cup into another over a sink.
Teacher Eve Cusack attempts to stop all of this activity and corral the children to go outside.

Indiana's Family and Social Services Administration Tuesday announced those five counties have been chosen from a pool of 18 semi-finalists to participate in Indiana’s pre-K pilot program.
The FSSA selected the final counties based on their need for preschool programs and their ability to meet that need. Officials had also said cooperation between agencies in each county would be a major determining factor.
Ninety-six percent. That’s the number of Indiana employers who expect their workforce could increase in the next couple of years.
In most cases, they’ll be looking for employees who have at least a high school diploma. StateImpact Indiana’s Rachel Morello visited a new charter school in Kokomo that offers adults the opportunity to go back to school and earn a high school diploma, rather than a GED.
The Family and Social Services Administration will announce this month the five counties selected to participate in the state’s new pre-k pilot program, Indiana’s first big move toward making preschool a priority.
But many believe a child’s learning needs to be a priority from the beginning of his life, before he ever enters a classroom.
