INDIANAPOLIS—Following today’s speech by the governor outlining his 2014 education initiatives, Senate Democratic Leader Tim Lanane (D-Anderson) released the following statement:

“The governor’s agenda as it pertains to education is one that provides the need for both credit and concern.

“From increasing graduation rates and Hoosier incomes, to lowering public expenditure on remediation and incarceration, decades of study show that the results of early childhood education are in fact, not mixed.

“The varied results the governor speaks of are a direct result of a failure to fully commit to early childhood education. That commitment means real teachers, real curriculum and real classrooms.

“Simply tacking early childhood education onto an existing voucher program does a disservice to young Hoosiers and our state’s public schools.  Any early education proposal must include local input.“

Sen. Lanane represents Indiana Senate District 25 includes the portions of Madison and Delaware counties, including the City of Muncie and the southeastern portion of the City of Anderson.
