    Superintendent-elect Glenda Ritz, left, will have to work with Republican Gov. Mike Pence to make changes at Indiana schools.

    For weeks now, we’ve been trying to predict what Glenda Ritz’s upset victory will mean for Indiana schools. It’s no surprise — her defeat of Tony Bennett was the top education story of 2012.

    When Ritz takes office next month, we’ll finally get some answers to the questions we’ve been asking since the election: Can Ritz work with a Pence-appointed state board? With so many of Bennett’s policies built into law, will she be able to effect change?

    But Glenda Ritz is just one of the many stories we’ll be following next year. Here’s your 2013 StateImpact guide to education in Indiana.

    What education stories do you plan to follow in 2013? If there’s anything missing from our list, let us know.
