INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Gov. Eric Holcomb has announced details of three public hearings a state commission will hold this month as it examines Indiana’s teacher pay gap.

The governor announced the hearings for his blue-ribbon teacher compensation commission last month without specifics.

Holcomb’s office said Thursday that an Aug. 24 hearing in Evansville will start at 10 a.m. CDT at Central High School.

Additionally, an August 19 hearing in Indianapolis will begin at 7 p.m. EDT at the Ivy Tech Culinary and Conference Center, and a hearing scheduled for August 27 in Elkhart will begin at 7 p.m. EDT at Concord Jr. High.

The commission and its advisory council are tasked with providing recommendations to Holcomb and the General Assembly prior to the 2021 legislative session on how to achieve competitive compensation.
