Today is a great opportunity for educators, families and community members to express their voice at the people's house. I remain committed to finding long-term sustainable solutions to increase teacher compensation. That's why I created the Next Level Teacher Compensation Commission and signed our recent two-year budget that included historic levels of increased funding for K-12. As we continue to seek systemic improvements, it's essential we retain and attract great teachers to ensure Hoosier students receive the best education our state can offer.
