INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Republican Gov. Eric Holcomb says his blue-ribbon teacher compensation commission will hold three hearings across the state next month as part of his effort to make teacher pay in Indiana competitive with surrounding states.

The hearings will be held Monday, Aug. 19 in Indianapolis; Saturday, Aug. 24 in Evansville; and Tuesday, Aug. 27 in Elkhart. Locations and times will be announced later.

The commission and its advisory council have been tasked with providing recommendations on how to achieve competitive compensation. The commission will deliver the recommendations to the governor and the General Assembly prior to the 2021 legislative session.

During the hearings, members of the commission and advisory council will seek ideas and solutions to the teacher pay gap and listen to concerns.
