INDIANAPOLIS - In response to today's ruling by the Indiana Supreme Court in Meredith v. Pence, Indiana Superintendent of Public Instruction Glenda Ritz issued the following statement:

"While I have great respect for the court, I am disappointed in today's decision. As State Superintendent, I will follow the court's ruling and faithfully administer Indiana's voucher program. However, I personally believe that public dollars should go to public schools, and I encourage Hoosiers to send that message to their representatives in the Statehouse."
