ROMNEY NAMES TWO NEW MEMBERS TO THE BOARD OF EDUCATION
November 20 - Governor Mitt Romney today appointed Thomas Fortmann and Sandra Stotsky to serve five-year terms on the state Board of Education, the nine-member panel that sets policy for K-12 education in Massachusetts. The new appointees replace James Peyser and Abigail Thernstrom, whose terms had expired. The Governor named current Board of Education member Christopher Anderson to serve as board chair.
"Tom Fortmann and Sandra Stotsky each bring a lifetime of educational experience to the Board of Education," said Romney. "They will insist on high standards, preserve the choice offered by charter schools and make sure that the needs of children always come first in the decisions we make regarding education policy."
