Rick Scott’s pick for State Board of Education, dubious education background.
And I am not talking about Teach for America either, though I could and a lot. I am talking about her personal education.
First she has a BA from Pennsylvania in psychology, maybe communications, it’s hard to tell it’s not on her Linked In page and this from the glass ceiling is a little hard to interpret, but hey if you are going to be a consultant of some sort those are probably great degrees to have. Which by the way was what she was doing when Scott picked her to be on the board. http://glassceiling.com/?p=3078
Then she got a Master’s in Ed from Banks College in New York, that’s everywhere but if you go to the Banks Website it says this.
On April 26, 2012, the Graduate School was accepted as a formal candidate for accreditation by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE). NCATE candidacy status means that the Graduate School of Education has met all preconditions and is actively working towards the other requirements. Below is an overview of our timeline.
So basically she got the gig with just two years of TFA classroom experience and a masters in Ed from a non accredited college, and that’s the best we can do?
