IN THE AREA AT THE TIME OF THE
CRASH.
THE NEXT STATE SUPERINTENDENT
OF SCHOOLS HAS BIG PLANS FOR
EDUCATION IN INDIANA.
GLENDA RITZ WANTS TO GO A
DIFFERENT DIRECTION IN TESTING
AND TAKEOVERS.
SHE WANTS TO MAKE PEOPLE FEEL
BETTER ABOUT SCHOOLS ALL OVER
INDIANA.
WE NEED A MORALE BOOSTER FOR
SURE IN THE STATE OF INDIANA,
BECAUSE TEACHERS HAVE BEEN VERY
FRUSTRATED, ALL EDUCATORS HAVE

HER INTEREST GOES BEYOND TEST

ABOUT THE SCHOOL CULTURE WE

TO MAKE SURE KIDS GET THE BEST
EDUCATION.
