Lanane responds to hold harmless needed for low ILEARN scores

INDIANAPOLIS – Senate Democratic Leader Tim Lanane (D-Anderson) released the following comments after ILEARN scores were released Wednesday.

“I will reiterate a statement I made last week: legislative leadership in Indiana needs to refrain from consistently changing the rules in the middle of the game for our students and educators. This is not the first time we have seen a dip in test scores attributed to lack of time to adjust to new testing guidelines. Additionally, we shouldn’t rely on such high stakes testing to determine a school’s funding as well as teachers’ performance bonuses. Let’s let our teachers teach and our students learn, and if changes must be made, the legislature needs to make a better effort to listen to those who have actually spent time in the classroom.”
