One of Gov. Mitch Daniels main topics in the State of the State was education, and State Superintendent Tony Bennett responded with enthusiasm to the governor's plans for public education in Indiana.
Bennett said, "In these tough economic times, we are fortunate to be faring better than most states. But as we are finding out in education, 'better' does not always mean 'easy.'
“Tough decisions will be made this legislative session, though the governor certainly gave us a strong foothold from which to start."
Bennett added, administrative costs may have to be cut to bring back money to the classroom.
