(St. Joseph County) - A rural St. Joseph County township is fleeing the South Bend School District for greener pastures.
Residents in Green Township petitioned state lawmakers to allow them to join the John Glenn School Corporation. They say roughly three-fourths of the township's children already attends John Glenn Schools. The Indiana house approved the request and it'll now be considered in the Senate.
Debate over the exodus caused a controversy of its own down at the State House this week. Indy Star reports that claims of racism during debate of the bill on Thursday was met with “boos” by Republican legislators.
