Your recent article about the Indiana State Board of Education battle over the school grading system was misleading.
Your reference to Tony Bennett altering the grading scheme was inaccurate and did not include pertinent information. His actions were investigated, and it was determined that treatment afforded to the charter school was consistently applied to 165 other schools with similar circumstances.
There was a glitch in the formula that did not account for schools that did not fall within the usual categories: middle, elementary, high school. Changing the grading system adjusted for this glitch.
Regardless of what you think of Tony Bennett and his politics, you should have printed the whole truth.
