“Supporters will be wearing red for public ed,” the ICPE said.

Scheduled speakers at the rally include the following: Dr. Jennifer McCormick, Indiana State Superintendent of Public Instruction; Teresa Meredith, president of the Indiana State Teachers Association; GlenEva Dunham, president of the American Federation of Teachers Indiana; Cathy Fuentes, parent and school board member; Dr. Ramon Botts of Concerned Clergy; and legislators to be announced.
