Tony Bennett said resigning in Florida

August 1, 2013

      TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Florida’s education commissioner will resign amid allegations that he changed the grade of a charter school run by a major Republican donor during his previous job as Indiana’s school chief, a state education official said Thursday.
    Tony Bennett will resign in the wake of the scandal surrounding Christel House Academy, the official told The Associated Press. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the announcement was not yet authorized for public release.
    Bennett, when reached by the AP, would say only that ‘‘no decisions have been made at this point.’’ He has denied any wrongdoing.
    Emails published by the AP this week show Bennett and his Indiana staff scrambled last fall to ensure Christel DeHaan’s school received an ‘‘A,’’ despite poor 10th-grade algebra scores that initially earned it a ‘‘C.’’
