Kindergarten teacher Twyla Flint is worried.
"We’ve been hearing about the discourse, the difficulties that they’ve been having through, you know, television and news reports over the last several months," she says.
Flint could be describing Congress. But she’s actually talking about a more local group: Indiana’s State Board of Education.
The group has a lot of influence over what happens in her classroom so Flint went to watch the Board meeting last Wednesday like it was some kind of traveling sideshow.
