The Indianapolis education reform group The Mind Trust last week announced it received $24 million in grant funds from The City Fund, the Lilly Endowment, and the Richard M. Fairbanks Foundation. The Mind Trust’s vision – which includes the growth of schools that operate independently of most district policies – has largely come to fruition.

From WFYI’s Education Desk, Carter Barrett sat down with Mind Trust CEO Brandon Brown to find out how these grants could shape the future of education policy in Indianapolis.
