Report: Grade changed for Republican donor Christel DeHaan's charter school | Indianapolis Star

Report: Grade changed for Republican donor Christel DeHaan's charter school | Indianapolis Star | :: The 4th Era :: | Scoop.it

Summary by It's GOOD

 

"Assigning grades to schools according to standardized test scores is a cornerstone of the education reform movement. But the AP has discovered that when an Indianapolis charter run by a donor who's given over $2.8 million to Republicans scored poorly, former Indiana and current Florida schools chief Tony Bennett changed the school grading system so the charter would receive an A instead of a C. Bennett told staffers anything less than an A "compromises all of our accountability work."

Jim Lerman's insight:

If this is accurate, what a terrible scandal. If it's not accurate, shame on the IndyStar. Image is of Tony Bennett.
