The damn media

To hear IPS Superintendent Eugene White tell it, if you think Indy's school system is broken, thank the entire local press corps. All the progress Indy public schools have made in the past few years has been ignored, he told a packed audience Monday night during an ongoing series of discussions of Indy schools at Central Library. Interesting complaint from a man whose communications staff told NUVO last week that the superintendent could not make time for an interview anytime in the next month. (Bureaucracy in action? The mayor is easier to get a hold of than that!) All that aside, White's core message squared with what many other engaged citizens know to be true: If Indy is going to have truly great schools, the community must "get serious" about education — both within the walls of our schools and beyond.
