We must aspire to build an education system that maximizes the potential of all Hoosier students and prepares them to excel in an economy of the future so they can build a great life right here in Indiana.
Our current education system is simply not producing enough well-educated Hoosiers. We leave too many behind who cannot read, who are allowed to receive a high school diploma without fully earning it or who lose interest and simply drop out altogether. Our state’s economic future depends on addressing these issues with urgency and aspiration.
That is why I am proposing a transformational plan on how to educate our students because the status quo is simply unacceptable.
We must rethink and redesign every aspect of how we teach students and it must be based on sound science regarding how young people learn and how to design programs that support our students’ different learning styles; we must dramatically increase the number of Hoosiers who are getting a great education; and we must invest more than we do today, because nothing can replace the value and opportunities that come from a great education.
That is why I am proposing my Learn More, Earn More plan, which will bring about the transformational change to meet these objectives.
This is a time to take bold action to prepare our children for the future and our state for continued economic opportunity.
My Learn More, Earn More plan will bring bold, transformational change to our education system and prepare all Hoosier students to build a successful future no matter what pathway they choose.
