STATEHOUSE (June 20, 2018) — State Rep. Tony Cook (R-Cicero) was recently selected to serve on the Interim Study Committee on Education.

Cook said in the coming months, the committee will examine issues related to career counseling for students in elementary and high school, and how autism is addressed in public education.

“Ensuring Hoosier students receive a high-quality education and have access to appropriate resources while in school is a high priority,” Cook said. “This interim, I look forward to continuing to examine career counseling for students to connect them with opportunities both inside and outside the classroom as they prepare for life after graduation.”

Cook said interim study committee hearings, which typically occur at the Statehouse in Indianapolis, can be viewed live online at iga.in.gov. This site also provides committee calendars and meeting agendas. Members of the public are welcomed to attend and testify.
