The South Bend School Board will be asked to get involved in Indiana's debate over education reform.

A resolution asks board members to voice concerns about any program that would take funds away from public schools.

That is an apparent reference to proposals on charter school expansion and private school vouchers.

The resolution also seeks to put the board on record in opposition of taking away the collective bargaining rights of teachers.

South Bend School Board member William Sniadecki said, “Every time we opened up a magnet school they gave up their rights. We did rehiring, which wasn't by seniority, it was by qualifications. Now you have that all the way back to when Kennedy and LaSalle started.”

The South Bend School Board meeting started at 6:30 p.m. Monday.
