Mayor to take control of 4 struggling Indy schools...
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) _ The Indiana State Board of Education is handing authority over four troubled Indianapolis schools over to the city's mayor.
The board's unanimous vote Wednesday will give Indianapolis Mayor Greg Ballard control over Arlington, Howe and Manual high schools and Donman Middle School at the end of the current school year. The mayor's office will have oversight over 33 total schools, including 22 charter schools now open and seven more opening in the next two years.
The four schools Ballard is taking over were previously part of the Indianapolis Public Schools. The state took control of them last summer following six straight years of failing performance.
Indiana Superintendent of Public Instruction Glenda Ritz says she's a firm believer that local oversight is best for the schools.
