A plan to turn over seven struggling Indiana schools -- six of which are located in Indianapolis -- to private companies is drawing mixed reactions from officials and experts in the state. Tony Bennett, state superintendent of public instruction, on Friday revealed the names of three companies that could be tasked with running the failing schools. However, Indianapolis schools chief Eugene White and others are critical of the approach. "I don't believe any turnaround organization is going to do any better with those schools than we are," White said.
