INDIANAPOLIS (Indiana’s NewsCenter) - Governor Mitch Daniels is pushing for education reform in the Hoosier state, and presented his legislative agenda to an education roundtable Wednesday morning.

Part of his plan calls for performance pay for teachers and principals, and giving parents more choices, giving them the opportunity to send their child to other public schools, charter schools and even private schools.

Superintendent of Public Instruction, Dr. Tony Bennett says he favors many of the proposals.

Dr. Bennett says, “Frankly what we need to do is put our feet on the accelerator and move faster. Our kids are screaming for it. Our state is screaming for it. I think the nation is screaming for an example of a state that knows how to get things done."

The education roundtable is composed of key figures in education, government, business and in the community.
