    The Indiana Department of Education is beginning a listening tour to hear Hoosier input as they prepare to implement the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). Please consider attending the session nearest to you and asking where and how the social studies will be included in this plan. This process is in its beginning stages and this is the time to pose these important questions and be sure that social studies remains a part of Hoosier students' educational experience. You can read more about ESSA and the listening tour here: http://www.doe.in.gov/essa.
