Quality public education is one of the foundations of a free society and is the cornerstone of growth within rural Indiana. While many of the changes enacted in 2010 to the state's public education laws remain a concern, the impact those changes may have on public education should continue to be monitored and evaluated before any major modifications are enacted. Farm Bureau does believe that whenever a referendum is held to raise funds for school capital projects or operating purposes, all property owners, including those who do not reside on the taxable property, should be able to vote on the referendum.

Farm Bureau supports the development of legislative criteria for school reorganization and for the funding of vocational agriculture and other agriculture programs in the state’s public schools.
