Indiana Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages
Compiled by Donna Albrecht, Trish Morita-Mullaney, Haley Frischkorn & Beth Samuelson
The Indiana Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages’ (INTESOL) professional organization is grateful for stable funding of 22.5 million in the Non English Speaking Program Bill of HB 1001 for this biennium (2022-2024). Its provision protects the general education funds of already over-tapped local general education budgets, particularly given the demands of the pandemic.
The Indiana Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages (INTESOL) professional organization opposes the currently proposed tiering formula in the Non-English Speaking Bill (HB 1001). We advocate for a return to the per-pupil formula where the value for each child is the same.
