State Board of Regents Chancellor Merryl Tisch has raised the ire of a number of colleagues on the education policy-setting board — a divide that could affect the selection of a new education commissioner and the implementation of education reforms.The unnamed regent goes on to say the search to replace former NYSED Commissioner King isn't going so well, in part because Tisch has sowed discord on the board.
Several regents believe Tisch has been circumventing the board when it comes to expressing positions on key issues like testing and teacher evaluations.
“As a board, I feel we’re being marginalized,” said one regent. “We have to address that.”
The Lovett article then ends with this:
“This is the weakest I’ve seen her,” the regent said.
Something to think about as the battle over the Cuomo/Tisch/NYSED education reform agenda rages on.
