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,
deregulation of industry, Reagan's policy legacy, and "character
education." "
The latter part of her resume reflects her support of these. 

 

Wish that "Listening to those with the experience - classroom teachers" might be her top consideration ... since that's the base-line her new boss continually uses. Letting teachers guide policy-making, however, doesn't appear in any of the lists of her accomplishments ...
