Flanner House Elementary to Close Amid ISTEP Cheating Allegations

An investigation by the Indiana Department of Education suggests a systemic cheating operation at the traditionally poor-performing Indianapolis charter school that spanned two years and caused “an unexplainable extraordinary increase in the scores of Flanner House students on the Spring 2013 ISTEP+ assessment.”

Now, nearly 200 minority and low-income students are left to find other school options weeks after the start of the academic year. On Thursday, outraged parents yelled at a school board member who rushed out of a meeting on the closure.
