The Santa Fe Reporter picked up on New Mexico's Spyglass's article on the Fox Guarding the Hen House: How PED Education Secretary Designate Hanna Skandera hired the lawyer/lobbyist for all of the state's charter schools to regulate her own clients.
Kudos to Wren Abbott at the Santa Fe Reporter for a great article on the appearance of impropriety of hiring a lawyer/lobbyist as regulator at NM PED. Wren took the information that we broke in New Mexico's Spyglass and took it to a whole new level of in depth reporting that should make other news outlets stand up and take notice. Read Wren's article here. This appointment was cronyism at it's worst and should be rescinded.
