New California Gov. Jerry Brown shakes up education policy
from Education Week
Against the backdrop of another smothering budget crisis, California Gov. Jerry Brown has quickly moved to put his stamp on the state's public schools by shaking up the state board of education and entrusting its members with more power. In some of his first moves, the newly elected Democrat eliminated the position of education secretary — an advisory post separate from the state's elected schools chief — and canned seven members of the state board, replacing them with former school superintendents, a teachers' union activist, and a well-known Stanford University education professor.
