Tony Bennett’s new job: Promoting Common Core test

INDIANAPOLIS – 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.
