FL education commissioner resigns over allegations he tweaked test scores in IN to favor Republican donor's pet cause, charter schools.

"State Education Commissioner Tony Bennett resigned Thursday, fueling controversy over the school grading system and delivering a blow to Gov. Rick Scott and the leaders working to overhaul Florida's system of school accountability. Coming to Florida in January from Indiana, Bennett had faced mounting calls for his resignation this week after revelations that he intervened in the grading system in Indiana to benefit a charter school run by a prominent Republican Party donor." -- Kathleen McGrory and Jeffrey S. Solochek, the Tampa Bay Times
