Donnelly Supports Hoosier Education Mourdock's Extreme Ideas Would Cut Billions from Hoosier Students

Press Release

Today, Joe Donnelly, candidate for U.S. Senate, visited Ivy Tech's Indianapolis campus to talk about his strong support for Indiana educational facilities, educators, and schools. Donnelly toured Ivy Tech's adult high school program, technology building, and new culinary school.

"Hoosier schools like Ivy Tech serve our state by giving students of all ages the tools they need to compete," said Donnelly. "That is why I am a strong supporter of Indiana educators and institutions: they allow us to be prepared to get and keep good-paying jobs so we can take care of our families and retire with dignity. Richard Mourdock wants to cut billions of dollars from Hoosier students and schools. In this challenging economy, we should be investing in the workforce, not eliminating opportunities to get good educations, or learn new skills, or train for a new career. Mourdock's "my way or the highway' approach puts politics over people."

Richard Mourdock's extreme agenda would eliminate all education aid including college financial aid and education aid to local communities, which could raise property taxes dramatically. If Mourdock couldn't get his way, he would start with draconian education cuts that would lay off teachers and hurt preschool students and students with special needs, leaving local cities and towns to pick up the bill.
