INDIANAPOLIS - Indiana Secretary of Education Dr. Katie Jenner released this statement commending Governor Eric J. Holcomb's 2021 State of the State address:

"Gov. Holcomb outlined initiatives that demonstrate an appreciation and understanding of the challenges that schools face, which are the same challenges I've heard from educators across the state. I’m thrilled the Governor has proposed increasing K-12 funding by $377 million over the biennium—those dollars will be critical to tackling education inequities head-on, helping our schools boost teacher compensation, and maximizing opportunities for success for every student. We look forward to working with our partners in the General Assembly throughout the budget process.”
