A group of local power brokers and education gurus wants to enact a plan to transfer control of Indianapolis Public Schools to the city's mayor. What's your take?

That's an A-plus idea. A drastic move is required; giving the mayor control allows for greater political accountability; and such a move has been successful in other major cities. [30 votes] (22%)
Failing grade. We need to shield schools from the whims of city politics. Plus, let's give recent IPS initiatives and new state education reforms a chance to show results. [76 votes] (55%)
Why limit it just to IPS? Common governance and a cohesive plan are needed for all of Marion County's school districts. [33 votes] (24%)
