In defense of Indiana’s “adjunct teacher” bill

Thing is, I’m not so sure this bill is a bad idea. For one, I used to be an adjunct teacher. I think the root of this bill is simply there aren’t enough teachers. I really don’t think legislators are scheming to undermine the profession of teaching. Why there aren’t enough teachers is, perhaps, a result of their own actions. But for now, I don’t think it’s trying to undermine teachers.
