STATEHOUSE (Oct. 22, 2019) – State Rep. Bob Behning (R-Indianapolis) was recently selected to serve as a member of two national education boards, where he will collaborate with education leaders from across the country.   

As a member of the Hoover Education Success Initiative Practitioner Council at Stanford University and the National Institute For Excellence in Teaching Steering Committee, Behning will work with educators and other elected officials on how to advance the teaching profession and improve learning outcomes in K-12 schools.

“Indiana continues to drive student success and elevate the teaching profession,” said Behning, chair of the House Education Committee. “Our state is in a unique position to share our best practices, while also learning from other experts in the field. I look forward to the many conversations that will take place in the coming months that can help improve our education system.” 

The Hoover Education Success Initiative Practitioner Council is a group of elected and appointed education officials representing a dozen states, both sides of the political spectrum, and legislative and executive government branches. The National Institute For Excellence in Teaching Steering Committee consists of 14 educators and elected officials from across the country, including three members from Indiana, who will develop innovations and advance policies that have a direct impact on the classroom.
