IMEA is encouraging the rejection of the proposed Career Specialist Permit, which is part of the new Rules for Educator Preparation and Accountability, aka REPA III. IMEA urges individuals to review the letter and then send an email stating the same to all of the members of the Indiana State Board of Education at their email addresses (follow link). The Indiana State Board of Education is set to discuss this at their August 2nd Board Meeting and IMEA is encouraging notes of rejection be sent by August 1st. This permit has the potential to diminish music teaching, and the teaching profession as a whole, in myriad ways.
