For the second time in a week, the candidates for Indiana Superintendent of Public Instruction will be in the same place to talk education policy — this time, for a debate on live radio.
The campaigns, NIPR and IPFW’s Mike Downs Center for Indiana Politics scheduled the debate to occur two days after Bennett and Ritz both appear in a candidate forum in Crawfordsville.
The organizers of the Fort Wayne radio debate have yet to select a moderator.
The debate should provide a clear contrast between the two candidates as both are practically diametrically opposed on almost every key issue — A-F grading, school choice, standardized testing and teacher evaluations.
Tickets for the Crawfordsville forum featuring Bennett, the Republican, and Ritz, the Democrat, were picked up “in record time,” according to the League of Women Voters website. But video will be streamed online from the Ball Theater at Wabash College on October 24 at 5:30 p.m.
