INDIANAPOLIS — Democratic State School Superintendent Glenda Ritz says former Superintendent Tony Bennett broke the state's rule for grading Indiana schools when he changed the formula last year for a donor's charter school.The Daily Journal reports Ritz told Democratic activists last week "If you believe those (changed grades) were done because they should have been, you're fooling yourself."

The authors of a legislative report released last week found Bennett applied the changes equally, but say their work neither vindicates nor exonerates him. Bennett and his supporters, however, say he has been vindicated.

Bennett resigned his job as Florida's schools chief shortly after the Associated Press published emails showing he overhauled Indiana's school grading formula after learning a donor's charter school received a "C."
