Education Community Action Team (ECAT)
https://www.facebook.com/groups/287555804641345/
Formed out of community action group meetings on the west side of Indianapolis at Big Car/Service Center for Contemporary Culture and Community. Members of ECAT attended most all of the Stand for Children's "What's Possible" meetings in Indianapolis where surveys and discussions were held on what is possible for education reform in Indiana. A training on "What to do when children are not the bullies?" was put together and held recently as well.

Education Forum of Indiana
http://www.facebook.com/groups/educationforumofindiana/
This page has been setup to share information about education policy in Indiana. Currently, we are deeply concerned about the proposed changes issued by the Indiana Department of Education related to the Rules for Educator Preparation and Accountability (REPA II). We believe these changes are likely to undermine the capacity of teachers to address the educational needs of children with disabilities and their families.

Indiana Citizens for Public Education
http://indianapubliceducation.blogspot.com/
Indiana Citizens for Public Education represents a collection of educators, parents, and community members deeply concerned about the state of public education in Indiana and the larger United States. Important to note is that we are NOT: affiliated with a union; anti-charter school; defenders of the status quo; or uncritical of existing public schools. We are pro-public education, anti-school privatization, pro-teacher, pro-democracy, and, at the core, invested in supporting good public schools that help all of our children.

Indiana Coalition for Public Education (ICPE)
http://www.icpe2011.com
The ICPE is a new, bi-partisan non-profit organization. Its mission is to focus public tax dollars on the K-12 education of public school students by opposing legislation in the Indiana General Assembly that would:

  • fund private school vouchers
  • expand private school tax credits
  • privatize charter schools by allowing private colleges and agencies to be authorizers
  • put for-profit managers in place to take a profit from operating public schools
  • privatize public schools through any other means

Northeast Indiana Friends of Public Education
Blog: http://neifpe.blogspot.com/
FaceBook: http://www.facebook.com/NEIFPE
Twitter: https://twitter.com/@neifpe
LinkedIn: NEIFPE
We are citizens, teachers, administrators, and parents united by our support for public education and by concerns for its future. Recent federal and state reform measures have created an over-emphasis on testing and have turned over public education to private interests. We believe that these reforms threaten the well-being of our children and jeopardize their futures. Our goal is to inform ourselves and to start community discussion about the impact of these measures on our public schools and, more importantly, on our children.
