Reinventing America's School – Indianapolis
Indianapolis is the only American city where the mayor authorizes charter schools. Indiana’s charter law has been ranked No. 1 in the country by both the National Association of Public Charter Schools and the National Association of Charter School Authorizers. Some skeptics doubt that cities other than hot spots that draw millennials, such as Boston, D.C., New Orleans, and Denver, can attract the talent necessary to build large, vibrant charter sectors. But for the past decade, Indianapolis has proven them wrong. Today the city is innovating again.
