The Associated Press has been conducting a study of emails written by former Indiana School Superintend of Schools Toney Bennett.

The AP says that education leaders scrambled to overhaul the A-F school grading program at least in part to ensure that a prominent Republican donor's charter school received a top mark.

Bennett allegedly urged his staff to find a way to give Christel House an A grade despite poor test scores in algebra that earned it a C.

Bennett was voted out of office and he has now been hired at Florida's Education Commissioner.

He is currently reviewing that states policies and looking for possible changes.
