    Two Indiana districts are facing some level of state intervention. Over the short term, it is relatively easy to hide ineptitude and malfeasance, and there exists no mechanisms by which the state might investigate and resolve fiscal issues before taxpayers and families are unfairly burdened. In a 2011 legislative blow to teachers unions, Indiana superintendents and school boards were given complete autonomy and can wreak a lot of damage before being brought to account.

    This district would not negotiate a labor contract with the local teachers' union, resulting in retroactive pay cuts and a mass exodus of staff. Only after the state appointed an emergency manager was the teachers' contract finally resolved.
