Election Could Shake Up Indianapolis School Board. Here’s Who is Running for Reelection
At a meeting to select Indianapolis Public Schools board leaders, attention quickly turned to the November 2020 election. Four seats are on the ballot, and the results could help shape the direction of the state’s largest district for years to come.
If skeptics of the current administration win two or three of the seats in November, it could shift the balance of power on the seven-member board. Supporters of school choice-friendly policies have controlled the board for several years, allowing former Superintendent Lewis Ferebee to reshape the district. In 2018, however, two union-backed candidates who were critical of Ferebee’s administration defeated incumbents to win seats.
