On Friday, the grader became the graded.

Experts studied every move made by the man who assigned an A-F grade to all Indiana schools. In the end, they determined that former state school superintendent Tony Bennett did nothing wrong when he tweaked the method for assigning school grades.

Some had suggested the changes were made to benefit the charter school of a prominent Republican Party donor, but an independent review found that the actions were plausible and consistently applied to all schools.

“Confidence in the grading process has to be raised and we concur with that wholeheartedly,” said Indiana House Speaker Brian Bosma. “We’ll work closely with the superintendent to be sure that’s the case and that a new rule will be implemented soon.”

Indiana lawmakers have already ordered that new rules be drawn up to measure school performance.
