TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) — Superintendent of Public Instruction Glenda Ritz is spending the day in our area.

Ritz spoke at the STEM conference on Purdue’s campus Tuesday morning. She stressed the importance of pushing science, technology, engineering and math inside classrooms.

Ritz said jobs in those fields are growing increasingly popular and we need to prepare students for the workforce.

Later Tuesday afternoon, Ritz will tour Benton Central Junior-Senior High School and Otterbein Elementary School.

News 18 will have more on those visits tonight at five and six.
