Some local educators and politicians said they are not surprised former Indiana Superintendent of Public Instruction Tony Bennett may have manipulated the A-F school grading formula developed by his office in favor of charter schools.
GARY | The eight charter schools in Gary have had a dramatic effect on decreased enrollment in the Gary Community School Corp., more than in any other urban area of the state.
The Crown Point Community School Corp. has paved the way for local districts seeking voter approval for tax increases to aid in funding shortfalls, region school officials said.
A new survey shows more Hoosiers say K-12 education is getting worse, not better. This comes even as public school teachers rally in large numbers in support of public schools.
For the first time, more Hoosiers say K-12 education is getting worse, not better. That's according to a survey conducted by the Center for Evaluation and Education Policy at Indiana University Bloomington.
Local education leaders say if state education cuts continue and the funding formula remains the same, nearly every school district may ask taxpayers to increase property taxes.
