Scott knows that without a quality education, good jobs don't just appear. As a member of the Senate Education Committee, Scott has partnered with Governor Mitch Daniels on education reforms that will ensure all students have equal access to a quality education and that support efforts to guarantee the best teachers fill our classrooms and are paid accordingly. Scott also supports efforts to provide schools more funding flexibility to help avoid teacher layoffs and direct more dollars to our classrooms.
As a parent, Scott knows all too well the challenges Hoosier families face when it comes to affording to send their children to college. He has supported legislation that helps make tuition for our state colleges and universities more affordable, and will continue that effort so that our children and grandchildren have the opportunity to pursue their dream of a college education.
