  • Prioritize our public schools and ensure that there is adequate funding
  • Separate voucher school funding from community-based school funding so that tax payers are fully aware of the allocation of resources
  • Hold charter, virtual and private voucher schools to the same transparency and financial reporting requirements as public schools
  • Allow schools the opportunity to adjust while Indiana transitions to its new state standards and assessment by suspending accountability requirements
  • Stop over-testing students and empower teachers to educate based on their expertise and the students’ needs
