Pence Appoints Burnett to Early Learning Advisory Committee

Gov. Mike Pence has appointed a local man as a special adviser to his Early Learning Advisory Committee.

John Burnett, executive director of the Community Education Coalition in Columbus, told our news gathering partners at "The Republic" that his appointment presents a great opportunity to figure out how the state can best serve children especially before kindergarten.

Burnett hopes to incorporate his experiences with the Busy Bees Academy, a local effort pushed in part by the Community Education Coalition, to offer full-day prekindergarten to area children.
