State proposes new rule zeroing in on failing schools

Indiana's top educator is proposing a new rule that could speed up the takeover of failing public schools. State intervention could occur after a school is rated F in four consecutive years instead of six years, or after any combination of D or F for five consecutive years. The rule, proposed by state Superintendent of Public Instruction Tony Bennett, also contains a "parent trigger," allowing parents to petition for state intervention after two, three or four consecutive years if a school gets a D or an F.
