A Traditional, Proven Education
Public education is the foundation of our democracy and it strengthens our communities. Public schools offer diversity and inclusion for all students to achieve their best.
See why public schools deserve your support.
Public Schools Matter
Kids and families across the state depend on community public schools to deliver quality education to all students. However, that goal becomes more challenging as the available resources are divided between public schools, charters and private voucher schools. Actions by the Indiana General Assembly greatly impact public schools.
Public Educators are Excellent Educators
Public school educators demonstrate their value daily. Indiana’s traditional public school educators routinely receive accolades and honors from organizations, business and industry leaders recognizing their value in the classroom and community.
“I support public schools, because they provided endless opportunities for all students – there is something to pique every child’s interest. I am honored by my award and encouraged to further deepen my students’ love for music.”
Johanna Kitchell, Indiana American String Teachers Association, Middle School Teacher of the Year
"As music educators in the public schools, our greatest achievement is journeying alongside our students as they learn to reach the bottom of their souls. It’s hard to measure that on a standardized test."
Laura McCoy, Semifinalist, 2018 Grammy Music Educator Award
"As a special education teacher, I wholeheartedly advocate free and appropriate public education delivered in the least restrictive environment possible for students. I enjoy encouraging physical fitness and exercise while making learning fun and accessible."
Todd Krebs, Indiana Association for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance Educators Adapted Physical Education Teacher of the Year
Show Your Support for Community Public Schools
It’s time to stop experimenting with education reforms that negatively impact Hoosier kids. The state should refocus on education policies that strengthen and build upon the foundation of public education – support educators, adequately fund K – 12 community public schools and reverse course on expanding vouchers and funding failing charters.
Parents, students, educators and public education advocates are raising their voices in unison to support our community public schools. Sign the petition to support public schools.
