ISTA Statement on Gov. Holcomb’s Inclusion of Teacher Compensation in Legislative Priorities

ISTA President Teresa Meredith issued the following statement in reaction to Gov. Holcomb’s 2019 Next Level Agenda inclusion of improving teacher compensation.

“ISTA’s top priority this legislative session is improving teacher compensation and advancing the teaching profession. We thank Gov. Holcomb for sharing this as a priority. Along with the governor, we urge the legislature to take action and provide funding that leads to competitive salaries for all Hoosier teachers. This issue is urgent as every child deserves to have a caring and qualified teacher in their classroom.”
