ELKHART — State Superintendent of Public Instruction Glenda Ritz will be in Elkhart Saturday to give a presentation on education issues and answer questions from the public.

Ritz will join state lawmakers at this week’s Third House meeting at 10 a.m. Saturday, March 23, at the Greater Elkhart Chamber of Commerce, 418 S. Main St.

Attendees will hear legislative updates and be able to ask questions of Ritz and other lawmakers, according to information from the chamber. The event is free and open to the public.

Ritz has been the state public schools leader since January, after beating incumbent Tony Bennett in last fall’s election.

As superintendent-elect, she spoke to local Democrats in December, saying she would focus her work on improving literacy in Indiana schools, instituting full-day kindergarten and boosting Indiana’s ability to provide a skilled workforce, rather than focusing on the A to F rating of schools and other educational rating tactics.
