INDIANAPOLIS (AP) – Indiana Gov. Mike Pence is using a national appearance in New York City to promote the state's efforts to improve career training.
Pence touted steps to improve vocational training before an audience Monday at NBC's Education Nation summit. He also defended his choice to “pause” implementation of Common Core national education standards.
Pence has also looked to expand education overhauls championed by former Gov. Mitch Daniels and former School Superintendent Tony Bennett.
Pence joined two Democratic governors, Massachusetts' Deval Patrick and Kentucky's Steve Beshear, on the panel Monday.
