The town of Scottsburg, Indiana, has fewer than 10,000 residents.

There is a proposal before the City Council to open a charter school.

This will split the town.

Some public school parents have started a petition to ask the City Council and the Mayor not to open a charter school.

Please sign the parents’ petition.

And be sure not to sign any other petitions on the website or you may find yourself part of an organization you don’t want to belong to.

Ironically, this is the town where the recently defeated State Superintendent Tony Bennett got his start.

Help save public education for the children and families of Scottsburg.
