Secretary DeVos to Visit Purdue Polytechnic High School in Indianapolis During 2019 Back-to-School Tour

INDIANAPOLIS— U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos will visit Purdue Polytechnic High School in Indianapolis on Tuesday, September 17, to meet with students and faculty and to see hands-on STEM classes in action. This event is part of the Secretary’s Back to School tour, during which she is visiting schools that are rethinking education, preparing students for future careers, and providing students with multiple pathways to success.

The Secretary has long-advocated for the silos to be broken down between K-12 and higher education as well as between business and education. Purdue Polytechnic High School is doing just that. The school was founded by Purdue University, the City of Indianapolis, and industry and academic leaders. Leaders at innovative companies in the region work in tandem with teachers to design projects that equip students with useful career skills.

NOTE:
Credentialed media interested in attending the event must RSVP to press@ed.gov by 8 a.m. EDT on Tuesday, Sep. 17, 2019. A valid media credential and photo ID will be required for access to the event.
