ISTA Statement in Support of Moving Forward with Current Education Funding

Statement from ISTA President Keith Gambill responding to Gov. Eric Holcomb’s announcement that state leaders have made the decision to continue the current budget for K-12 public schools.

“We applaud the decision to sustain public education funding during this time of crisis. We also support the decision to allow schools to receive full funding, no matter how students return to class this fall. We thank educators for making their voices heard loud and clear on this issue.

“While concerns about the coming school year remain, these fiscal decisions give educators confidence that we can provide students a quality education in a safe environment this fall. We encourage the governor and legislators to continue making educators and kids a priority in the next budget year.”
