INDIANAPOLIS – A bill regulating school curriculum faces an uncertain future as it heads to the Indiana Senate.
House Bill 1134 passed the Indiana House on a 60-37 vote, with nine Republicans joining all House Democrats to oppose the measure.
Supporters say House Bill 1134 will increase transparency in K-12 schools and give parents more of a say.
Supporters say the proposal is a way to make sure parents have more of a say in schools, giving them more avenues to review more teaching materials. The teachers union argued the bill also puts more stress on teachers, worrying it would exacerbate the state’s teacher shortage.
A "twin" bill, Senate Bill 167, died in the Senate earlier in the session.
The Senate will now determine if they will review HB 1134.
