Statement from Senate President Pro Tem Rodric Bray on Senate Bill 2

State Sen. Rodric Bray (R-Martinsville) made the following statement today regarding the Senate’s passage of Senate Bill 2, which would hold K-12 schools harmless for the 2019 and 2020 test scores:

STATEHOUSE (Jan. 13, 2020) – “My colleagues in the Senate and I know our teachers and schools are working hard to give Hoosier children a great education, and we believe passing a hold harmless measure is the right thing to do as we adjust to the new rigors of ILEARN. This two-year measure will give the state time to adjust our accountability standards as we transition to the new test in order to provide more stability as we move forward. The Senate’s quick passage of this bill makes good on the promise we made publicly in the fall, and I’m pleased to see this measure progressing.”
