ISTA Settles $14 million lawsuit

Play

Last Tuesday, Secretary of State Connie Lawson and her office reached an agreement regarding terms of a 14 million dollar settlement with the Indiana State Teachers Association and the National Education Association.

The ISTA offered teachers and other school employees a medical plan that allowed school corporations to invest their excess balances to offset future health care costs. But, according to Secretary Lawson, that isn’t what ended up happening.

Lawson also alleges that the ISTA continuously issued quarterly and annual statements to schools misrepresenting fund balances. She says this has been a long time coming and that this settlement in the long run was the right thing to do.

The ISTA and NEA agreed to the settlement terms that would return $14 million to the 27 school corporations.
