Education, From The Capitol To The Classroom


Tindley Accelerated Schools (also known as EdPower), the Indianapolis based non-profit that oversees five charter schools in the city, petitioned the State Board of Education today for more money to operate Arlington Community High School. Tindley took over the failing school in 2012, claiming they receive less funding in federal School Improvement Grants (SIG) than previous years. 

Marcus Robinson, Chancellor and Chief Executive Officer of EdPower, testified before the board saying solutions need to be made to keep Arlington operational. 

"We've come not for a paycheck but for a partnership," Robinson said. 

If they cannot afford to keep the school open, Indianapolis Public Schools would most likely take over ownership of Arlington.
