Commissioner of Higher Educatio http://ripr.org en What Would Mancuso Move Mean for NECAP? http://ripr.org/post/what-would-mancuso-move-mean-necap <p>A vote Monday at the State Board of Education may create a leadership void at a key moment for opponents of a new test-based high school graduation requirement.</p><p>Those opponents have lined up some 20 people from the state’s higher education community to testify at Monday’s meeting, but they may be overshadowed by a vote to turn State Education Board Chair Eva-Marie Mancuso into the state’s Interim Commissioner of Higher Education. Governor Lincoln Chafee announced Mancuso as his choice for the post on Friday.</p> Mon, 15 Jul 2013 14:31:07 +0000 Elisabeth Harrison 18437 at http://ripr.org
