Tony Bennett takes job with testing company.

Even though it was both predictable and inevitable that
Bennett would take a job with a charter consortium or testing company it didn’t
stop people form throwing up up in their mouths a little when he finally did so.
Former Indiana Schools Superintendent Tony Bennett has found new
work helping to pitch a Common Core test to state education leaders.
ACT spokesman Ed Colby said
Friday that Bennett will help the company pitch its Aspire test throughout the
states.
ACT is more widely known for
its college-entry tests administered throughout the Midwest. But it is also one
of many testing companies looking to sell their tests to states that have
adopted Common Core standards.
Bennett resigned as Florida’s
schools chief earlier this year, shortly after The Associated Press published
emails showing he altered Indiana’s school grading formula to help benefit a
GOP donor’s charter school.
Bennett is scheduled to
appear before the State Ethics Commission next month on charges he misused
state resources when campaigning for re-election last year.

Remember folks, this guy was hired to run our schools
not to fill his pockets, a line that is often blurred in Tallahassee.
