Glenda Ritz gives her victory speech on Nov. 6, 2012.

Democrat Glenda Ritz pulled off an unexpected victory over Republican Tony Bennett in the race for state superintendent this week. Ritz’s supporters say her win shows Hoosiers were unhappy with education reform, but some question whether Ritz will be able to implement new policies with a Republican-controlled legislature.

This week on Noon Edition, we’ll talk with education experts about what Ritz’s win might mean for Indiana schools.
