Daniels’s Education Reforms

by Katrina Trinko

Over at The Weekly Standard, Ryan Streeter highlights Mitch Daniels’s accomplishments in education reform this legislative session:

When you roll Indiana’s reforms together, you find yourself looking at a state that offers vouchers to all who need them, has made creating new charter schools easier, erased boundaries between districts, delinked teacher pay from seniority, limited collective bargaining, and made student achievement a central measure of teacher evaluation. Back when school reform efforts began in earnest in the 1980s, this combination of reforms would have seemed a utopian dream.
