Next week the Indianapolis Public Schools Board will vote whether to end the Key Learning Community program at a downtown school and expand the popular magnet Center for Inquiry progam to a fourth school on the city’s North side -- at the current School 70. If approved, this will result in major changes for School 70 and Broad Ripple High School. WFYI’s Christopher Ayers talked to education reporter Eric Weddle about what this all means.
