Indiana’s students and schools have made great progress in recent years. According to the latest scores from the National Assessment of Educational Progress, Indiana is improving at the second-fastest rate of any state in the country.
We owe this progress to the hard work of our students, teachers and the parents and school reformers everywhere who have insisted that we hold ourselves to high standards.
To continue this momentum, in the last legislative session we increased funding for schools, created new performance funding for teachers who get results in the classroom and extended high-quality school options to more children.
