Thanks to ABQ Skippy for sharing this  article about the past actions of our new head of public education.

Ms. Skandera has held many key education positions, and at the beginning of her career served as a research fellow with the Hoover Institution, supporter of "education reform that centers around private school vouchers and charter schools, dismantling affirmative action, privatization of social services, "flat tax" and other tax reduction schemes,
