ISTA Statement in Response to House Republican Budget Proposal

ISTA President Teresa Meredith issued the following statement in reaction to the House Republican budget proposal.

“The House Republicans’ budget reflects some progress, but it’s not enough. Educators and the students they serve expect more and deserve more. Hoosiers understand that the future of our state and the success of our kids depends on a high-quality public education system. And if we’re serious about our kids’ futures, we need to get serious about doing what works. That means investing in educators – paying them as professionals. That means making sure our kids have the resources they need to be successful and productive citizens. It’s time for our elected officials to deliver on their commitment to make teacher compensation a priority this session.
