School funding concerns


FOR ME.” SOME TEACHERS ACROSS INDIANA SAY.. A NEW STATE PROPOSAL.. COULD PUT THEIR CLASSES.. AND.. IN SOME CASES.. THEIR JOBS ON THE LINE. IT HAS TO DO WITH THE FUTURE OF FAMILY.. AND CONSUMER SCIENCE CLASSES. WE USED TO REFER TO IT AS HOME-EC. OUR DUSTIN GROVE LOOKED INTO THE PROPOSAL, THE CONCERNS, AND WHY IT’S NOT A DONE DEAL JUST YET. :10 :49 1:16 CLASSROOM NATS IN THE FAMILY AND CONSUMER SCIENCE CLASSROOMS AT PIKE HIGH SCHOOL, TEACHERS SAY THIS ISN’T YOUR GRANDMOTHER’S COOKING CLASS. “17;20 OFTEN TIMES IN OUR DEPARTMENT PEOPLE GO BACK TO THE OLD HOME EC DAYS THINKING WE’RE JUST HERE STITCHING AND COOKING AND TEACHING YOUNG GIRLS HOW TO BE HOUSE WIVES AND THAT’S SO FAR FROM THE TRUTH.” ;33 TODAY, AMBER MCKINNEY SAYS HER DEPARTMENT FOCUSES ON CAREER READINESS AND COMMUNICATION SKILLS. SO SHE AND OTHERS WHO TEACH IN THIS AREA ARE CONCERNED ABOUT A NEW PROPOSAL .. THEY SAY .. WOULD CUT STATE FUNDING TO SEVERAL OF THESE CLASSES … SHIFTING MORE MONEY TO OTHER AREAS INSTEAD. 16;17 “SO IF WE LOSE NUTRITION AND WELLNESS, THEY’RE GOING TO LOSE THOSE BEGINNER SKILLS THAT THEY NEED AND THEY’RE GONNA END UP IN A CAREER WITHOUT TRAINING.” ;26. 51:13 “STRENGHENING CAREER AND TECHNICAL EDUCATION IS A PRIORITY FOR THE GOVERNOR’S WORKFORCE CABINET.” :17 THE STATE AGENCIES THAT PUT THE PROPOSAL TOGETHER … SAY IT’S NOT THAT THESE CLASSES AREN’T IMPORTANT. IT’S ABOUT PRIORITIES … SHIFTING MONEY TO PROGRAMS THAT REQUIRE MORE RESOURCES … AND TO PREPARE HOOSIER STUDENTS FOR CAREERS IN HIGHER DEMAND .. LIKE ENGINEERING. THE STATE BOARD OF EDUCATION WILL ULTIMATELY DECIDE … AND TEACHERS LIKE AMBER … WILL BE WATCHING CLOSELY. 19:34 “PEOPLE ARE VERY CONCERNED ABOUT THEIR JOBS.” 43;22 “THE STATE BOARD OF EDUCATION ACTUALLY POSTPONED TALKING ABOUT THIS UNTIL LATER THIS MONTH. IT’S NOW SET TO DISCUSS IT DECEMBER 27TH. FROM PIKE HS, DUSTIN GROVE, CHANNEL 13 EYEWITNESS NEWS.” :33
