The Indiana State Teachers Association launches an issues campaign to make sure Hoosiers know who is responsible for the $300 million in cuts to K-12 education.
"Keep the Promise" includes a Web site and radio and TV spots that ran in the waning days of the General Assembly's just-ended session.
Mark Shoup, ISTA spokesman, said he hopes to run more ads before the general election in November.
The TV spots feature Indiana teachers explaining that the budget cuts could mean laying off 5,000 teachers, increasing class sizes and cutting instructional program.
"Tell the governor and the legislators "No" to a $300 million cut in education. Tell them to keep the promise to Indiana's children."
