LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- Indiana's newly-elected governor was talking about education a day after the election.
Mike Pence says he believes Indiana voters endorsed a conservative education agenda by cementing Republican control of the legislature, even as voters ousted state education chief Tony Bennett, who pushed the education overhaul.
Pence says he'll work with superintendent elect Glenda Ritz, but when it comes to state education policy, the buck stops at the governor's desk.
Ritz has promised to roll back Bennett's agenda, which includes a private school voucher program and linking teachers' pay to student test scores.
