I very rarely write a response to an opinion article. However, when the title of the article says, “While Ritz, board spar, children get hurt,” I feel compelled to clear the air.
First, the author of the article knows I would never do anything to hurt Indiana’s children. I want the public to know that I will work to ensure that our students will not be hurt by what appears to be an attempted takeover of the Department of Education by Gov. Mike Pence.
Rather, I will provide a comprehensive support system for schools to ensure that students receive an education of equity and high quality.
