Where is the retraction?

Recently the Indy Star ran an article referencing a report from Governor Daniels administration indicating that Indiana had the "heftiest" school construction debt in the nation. The Star was so excited about this news that they ran it in the headline.

Meanwhile, a high ranking state official recently spoke publicly to a group of administrators and explained the misleading headlines.

Evidently, when calculating the Indiana school construction debt, the report included principal AND interest when calculating Indiana's debt, but the national sample was based on interest only.

How's that for apples and oranges.

If this is true one would hope that an explanation or retraction would be in order.

Don't hold your breath.

The education smear campaign continues. And people wonder why educators seem paranoid....... lol
