When she leaves office at the end of next year, Indiana education superintendent Jennifer McCormick will become the last person to be elected Indiana’s top educator. The position will be appointed by the governor starting in 2021 – a choice no longer afforded to the voters.

McCormick visited West Lafayette recently and WBAA’s Stan Jastrzebski sat down with her to talk about choices – including how parents choose schools and how she crafts the next step in her career.
