The Indiana Department of Education under state superintendent Tony Bennett failed to use millions of available federal dollars to help students from migrant families, a U.S. Education Department report shows. Bennett, who was ousted by Indiana voters last month, was anointed Wednesday as Florida’s education commissioner.

The report says that federal officials are “very concerned” about Indiana’s “failure to comply with a number of requirements and its inability to expend” federal migrant program funds as directed. The program provides federal funds to states to, among other things, support educational programs for migratory children, ensure that these children who move among states are not penalized by disparities among states in school requirements, and ensure that they receive full opportunities to meet the same standards as other children. Indiana’s Migrant Education Program enrolls about 1,000 eligible migrant students.
