Twitter Campaign Support for Ritz Growing

INDIANPOLIS, Ind. (WOWO): A growing coalition is hoping that a hash-tag will save the integrity of the Indiana Superintendent of Public Instruction.

The Indiana House could vote today, to remove Glenda Ritz as head of the State Board of Education, but a twitter movement launched by a group including angry parents and teachers is trying to keep that change from happening.

#IStandWithRitz was one of the top ranking hash-tags on Twitter yesterday, thanks in part to, Jennifer Dewitt from Noblesville who has three special needs children.

Dewitt says she doesn‘t understand why Republicans are trying to diminish Ritz‘s authority, other than partisan politics. Ritz is the only democrat to hold statewide office.
