We congratulate John King on his appointment and wish him well in his new role.
We look forward to working with the Board of Regents to find a commissioner who is well qualified to address the issues confronting public education.
New York’s next education leader must be a consensus builder, capable of bringing together multiple constituencies for the benefit of public school children in the state, and one who listens carefully to those who must implement State Education Department regulations.
