Hoosier Teachers Frustrated by Vaccine Rollout and the State's Voucher Program

Hoosier teachers remain concerned because most are still waiting on a vaccine.

Indiana teachers are becoming more frustrated, not knowing when they can get in line to be vaccinated against COVID-19.

So far, every bordering state to Indiana has opened up vaccine eligibility to teachers.

Governor Eric Holcomb hinted earlier, teachers could be eligible after Indiana finishes Phase One B, as they continue to vaccinate those 50 and older and with health conditions.

Some teachers across the state are wearing back as a "Black Out" to express opposition to bills in the house.

They say they're frustrated about not getting a pay raise, instead of seeing tax dollars diverted away from public education in the form of school vouchers.

Temperatures were a heck of a lot more bearable earlier this afternoon - despite our northwesterly winds, temperatures peaked at 54° in Evansville earlier on and are expected to remain quite comfortable as we head into the evening hours. Expect temperatures ranging from 48° to 41° between 7 PM and 10 PM; though the added cloud cover over the coming hours will only allow temperatures to fall as low as 38° by early Wednesday morning. It's not all good news however, it looks as though some of us (especially those north of the Ohio River) could see periods of scattered rainfall throughout our Wednesday morning.
