INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — A national mediator called into help with the state's ongoing education battle says she sees progress between the two sides.

Kris Amundson guided the members of the State Board of Education through a three-hour discussion of their roles. Amundson runs the National Association of State Boards of Education.

She was called in to help with an ongoing fight between Democratic schools Superintendent Glenda Ritz and board members who've been appointed by Republican governors.

Ritz stormed out of a board meeting last month after a member pushed a measure Ritz said would shift power from her. She previously sued board members alleging violation of Indiana's public access laws.

Ritz chairs the education board, but the other 10 members have been appointed by either Gov. Mike Pence or former Gov. Mitch Daniels.
