The last few weeks have brought a flurry of exciting policy reforms from the Midwest. In Indiana, a variety of new proposals aims to benefit students, teachers, and families.
Governor Mitch Daniels (R-IN) is lending his support to a proposal to create scholarships for low- and moderate-income students in the state. The scholarship program would allow low-income families to receive as much as 90 percent of the cost of educating a child in a public school to be put toward tuition at a private school of their choice. Although there is strong opposition, the Indiana governor has stated, “We intend to become the first state of full and true choice.”
