INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - The Indiana State Teachers Association is tapping a new leader as it deals with new leadership at the Statehouse.
Shelbyville elementary school teacher Teresa Meredith is taking over for longtime ISTA President Nate Schnellenberger. The Indianapolis Business Journal reported Monday (http://bit.ly/ZMRVRf ) that Meredith will serve a three-year term.
Schnellenberger fought unsuccessfully against a raft of educations changes pushed by former Gov. Mitch Daniels and former Republican Schools Superintendent Tony Bennett from 2007 to 2012. Teachers helped turn Bennett out of office last year and elected union member Glenda Ritz to the post.
Meredith was a lead plaintiff of ISTA's unsuccessful challenge to the state's school voucher law.
