Indiana House hopeful Bujalski backs measure to draw veterans into teaching
Indiana House hopeful Adam Bujalski backs a measure in the Indiana legislature meant to attract military veterans into the teaching profession.
“As an Army Veteran, it is important to me to see opportunities for our veterans for using their skill sets in our communities after returning from active duty,” Bujalski said Monday, Feb. 24, in a statement. “It can be hard to get back to normal day-to-day life after leaving the military, and anything we can do to help the men and women who have sacrificed for our country get back to normalcy is a great and welcomed idea.”
The measure, Senate Bill 331, passed both the Senate and, in amended form, the House and now goes back to the Senate so the two chambers can craft a compromise version. SB 331 would create scholarship opportunities for veterans who major in education and calls for a plan to recruit veterans into education programs, among other things.
Bujalski, a Republican, is vying for the District 48 seat in the Indiana House currently held by Rep. Tim Neese, who is not seeking re-election. Two other Republicans, Jesse Bohannon and Doug Miller, are also running.
