Indianapolis Public Schools wants to take back control of three schools operated by Charter Schools USA. Today we dig into this saga, and the ongoing story of a troubled school in Gary.
We talk to WFYI Education Reporter Eric Weddle about what a state takeover means for schools. In the process, the state government moves in to oversee a school’s operations, or assigns a private company to take over administrative duties. How are these changes executed? Is this the most effective strategy to turn failing schools around?
