Gregg on the War on Public Education

StateImpact, the NPR program that looks at education-related issues in states, has published a side-by-side comparisons of John Gregg's and Mike Pence's positions on education. Here's a strong statement from Gregg about the value of public education:
“This current administration has declared war on public education. The day I’m elected is when the war on public education and public educators, our schoolteachers, quits. That fear of this high stakes testing is legitimate because there’s a mindset that wants to do nothing, I’m convinced, but constantly beat down our public schools. And I don’t think that solves the problem. I’m not a fan of vouchers.”
