The Indiana Coalition for Public Education is bringing together the current and two former Indiana superintendents of public instruction for a panel on the future of public education in the state. The group's Saturday membership meeting will feature a discussion with Jennifer McCormick, who is currently in office, Glenda Ritz, who previously served in the role, and Suellen Reed, who served in the position from 1993 to 2009.

It opposes public funds for private school vouchers, expansion of private school tax credits, private college and agency charter school operators and other issues.
