INDIANAPOLIS | The Senate Education Committee approved legislation Wednesday that could end Indiana's A-F school grading system, permit some illegal immigrants to continue receiving in-state college tuition and give certain school corporations a say in whether new charter schools can open.
INDIANAPOLIS | Glenda Ritz, the newly elected Democratic state superintendent of public instruction, isn't going to let a state government controlled by Republicans stop her from making changes she believes will improve Indiana's schools.
Schools in Northwest Indiana were in line with those in the rest of the state as more than 61 percent of Indiana's schools received A or B grades for the 2011-12 year, though some also received failing grades.
INDIANAPOLIS | Indiana's plan to rate schools using grades A-F is an inadequate measure of student learning and unfairly holds teachers and schools responsible for students' lives outside the classroom.
INDIANAPOLIS | The idea seems simple — use letter grades to rate schools.
