First impressions of Hanna Skandera, public education secretary designate: smart, articulate, poised, confident and supportive of her staff.
“The Public Education Department and the employees who have been (through six months of big change) have been remarkable,” Skandera told the Legislative Education Study Committee (LESC) July 25.
My time at the meeting was brief, only an hour, because family business intruded. I went because of the opportunity to see Skandera in action and the chance to learn. Education jargon always impedes learning about education.
I think it’s some kind of cultural conspiracy against parents and citizens. More exposure, I figure, might bring more understanding.
