All about the Benjamins: Indiana/Florida school chief cooked test scores for donor’s school

Posted by Charles II on July 29, 2013

Via Atrios. It’s Tom Lo Bianco, AP, so link only.

Christel DeHaan is a major GOP donor, giving $2.8M to GOPers, including $130K to Tony Bennett.
Tony Bennett was the head of Indiana schools, and is now head of Florida schools.
Christel DeHaan had a private academy, Christel House Academy in Indianapolis.
Test scores gave it a C because of bad algebra scores.
After a flurry of e-mails about how bad this would be for Christel House, the scoring system was changed.
Christel House got an A.

The one good thing is that Bennett is in Florida because he was defeated for office by teachers angered at his methods, who supported Glenda Ritz.

Maybe Bennett and Michael Berkland can get together for an alternate reality show.

    This is the Tony Bennett who doesn’t sing, right?

    Is it my imagination, or is rigging the numbers the Republican/conservative solution to everything?
