INDIANA (21Alive) – Indiana’s Superintendent of Public Instruction, Glenda Ritz, says she's "dismayed" by the three jobs she faces after succeeding Tony Bennett.

According to The Herald Bulletin, Ritz says those jobs include dealing with the on-going investigation into Bennett’s manipulation of school grades, overhauling some changes he made, and finally, implementing her own program.

According to the report, last week the Associated Press published emails showing that Bennett and his staff changed the “A – F” grading formula to benefit a top Republican donor's charter school.
