Education superintendent McCormick says she won’t run, Holcomb reacts

first_imgIndianapolis, In. — Indiana state education superintendent Jennifer McCormick says she will not seek another term as the state’s top educator.McCormick blamed the political culture of state-level politics and speculation of her future and future of the position.“That noise can be a problem and that can be distracting and I have no patience for that,” she said. “I got into this office because I said I want to do what’s right for kids.”McCormick is in the middle of her first term and met with Gov. Eric Holcomb but did not discuss plans to discuss the decision with Republican party leaders.“That’s kind of the beauty of me,” she said. “I don’t owe anyone but kids, and that’s exactly where you want the state superintendent to be.”Governor Eric Holcomb offered the following statement regarding Superintendent of Public Instruction Jennifer McCormick:“Dr. McCormick and I spoke about her decision not to seek the office of state superintendent again in 2020 and her legislative priorities for the next two years. I reminded her that we have more time left in this term than we’ve been here, and there’s still plenty to be accomplished.“Dr. McCormick has given me a lot to digest as I dig into her legislative priorities. I thanked her and told her today I appreciate and respect her lifetime devotion to children and education, and that we’ll take the steps necessary to ensure Indiana has the best team working together to provide the highest quality education for children.”last_img read more
