Holcomb won’t see big Statehouse teacher rallyNovember 18, 2019
By The Associated Press
INDIANAPOLIS — Indiana Gov. Eric Holcomb isn’t expected to be around the Statehouse when thousands of teachers will be attending a rally there calling for better pay.
Holcomb’s office says he will be in Florida on Tuesday for a Republican Governors Association conference that was scheduled months ago.
His trip comes as teacher unions say more than 100 school districts around the state will be closed while their teachers head to the Indianapolis protest.
Holcomb hasn’t criticized school districts for closing the day of the union-organized rally, saying it was a local decision and that he applauds teachers for expressing their concerns.
The rally dubbed "Red for Ed Action Day” will happen on the day legislators are gathering for organization meetings ahead of their 2020 session.
