Our Hoosier teachers are heroes.  No doubt about it.  Navigating charged political and ever-changing societal landscapes, it's difficult to do our job and prepare our students for what waits for them out there.  Our jobs have become increasingly difficult (and in some cases, near impossible) but we persevere, heeding our calling -the reason we chose this profession.  Keep the faith and rely on your intuition.   We all hope these times pass quickly so we can be about our business in creating tomorrow's leaders and heroes.   Thank you for being a teacher!

Who are we?

IPE's priority is children and the commitment to provide them the best possible, uninterrupted education through professional educators.


IPE is adamantly opposed to forced unionization of public school educators and is the leading force protecting them from these abuses.


IPE believes that educators should be free from all forms of compulsory membership and endorsements.


IPE does not get involved in election campaigns, endorse candidates or use member dues to fund political causes or special interest groups.


IPE dues are very reasonable and related directly to the actual costs of our member benefits and services.


IPE IS NOT A UNION!  We provide an alternative to the insurance that is often obtained through teacher unions.
