Former Indiana State School Superintendent Tony Bennett has come under scrutiny recently after the Associated Press discovered emails that allegedly show that he tried to influence the evaluation of a charter school.
According to the reports, Bennett and his Indiana staff tried to ensure Christel DeHaan's school received an "A," despite poor 10th grade algebra scores that initially earned it a "C."
The school was supposedly run by a major republican donor.
Bennett lost his re-election bid last November in Indiana. He was hired by Florida in December to be the state’s education commissioner.
Now a Florida education official says that Bennett, will resign because of the allegations made by the AP report.
An official announcement has not yet been made.
