Now Kruse is back, and Rick Howlett's coverage (below) at 89.3 FM simply doesn't do justice to the sheer grandeur of this session's Kruse class project, dubiously entitled "truth in education."
For added detail we turn to Dan Carden at NWI Politics.
Kruse said he's "working on a different approach to the subject" focused on "truth in education."
Specifically, Kruse wants to empower students to challenge their teachers "to make sure what is being taught is true."
"If a student thinks something isn't true then they could question the teacher, and the teacher would have to come up with some better research to support what they're teaching is true or not true," said Kruse, chairman of the Senate Education Committee.
Kruse said under his plan, each school corporation would be allowed to determine the topics of questions students could ask and the types of evidence considered truth.
"It's going to be written in a kind of a broad way," Kruse said.
Yes, this guy has a college degree and was once a licensed teacher.
No, you weren't drugged and transported to the Middle Ages via the Illudium Q-36 Explosive Space Modulator.
It's still 2012 ... in most of the state.
