Statement of Department of Education on SB 1
In response to today's developments regarding Senate Bill 1, Daniel Altman, Press Secretary for the Indiana Department of Education issued the following statement:
"Superintendent Ritz has said all along that we need to ensure that Indiana schools have the resources they need so that all Hoosier children can learn in a safe environment. She believes that decisions about how to create that environment are best made at the local level; not mandated by the state. Moving forward, Superintendent Ritz looks forward to continuing this discussion with local schools and law enforcement throughout the state."
