Earlier this year, Indiana education leaders made a plan to transition three schools out of state takeover after nearly seven years and into independent charter schools. A public hearing about the charter applications for Emma Donnan Middle School, and Thomas Carr Howe and Emmrich Manual high schools is 5:30 p.m. Monday. WFYI Morning Edition’s Taylor Bennet talked with education reporter Eric Weddle about how this plan could be in jeopardy after Indianapolis Public Schools cut ties with the private company running the three schools.
