INDIANAPOLIS -

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.

Leaders from the organization will also preview the upcoming legislative session. The event will take place Saturday from 2-4 p.m. at the H. Dean Evans Community and Education Center in Indianapolis. You can connect to more information by clicking here and RSVP by clicking here.

The nonprofit says the event takes place amid "an era of privatization, declining budgets and increasing expectations." The ICPE's mission is to focus public tax dollars on the K-12 education of public school students. It opposes public funds for private school vouchers, expansion of private school tax credits, private college and agency charter school operators and other issues.
