It works for me in the current version InDesign CC 2015.

Start by restoring your InDesign preferences:
Does Cmd + Shift scaling work correctly for scaling a picture and its contents?
If that also doesn't work, you may have third party software interfering with your modifier keys. For example, some Chrome plug-ins can cause this problem.
I'm on a Mac OX El Capitan, Indesign 126.96.36.199
I've deleted the preferences but still getting the same result.
You didn't answer my question about using Cmd + Shift for scaling pictures. If that doesn't work, there is conflicting third party software.

I had the same issue, where cmd+shift would scale the size but not the text. I fixed it by going to the preferences>general>object editing and making sure that the adjust scaling percentage was on under the "When Scaling:" vs the apply to content and it fixed it!
That didn't work for me.

Did you try the Free Transform tool with the Shift key, Dennis?
