Gov. Malloy’s wise veto of the education commissioner bill

If you aim to limit the amount of innovation that can happen in the public education arena, one surefire method would be to keep it an insider’s game. On Monday the legislature is required to convene a veto session to consider whether to override any of Gov. Dannel Malloy’s vetoes.  At this time, it is unclear whether they will make that attempt.  One thing is clear, the legislature should not override the veto of legislation that would require future commissioners of education to meet certain qualification thresholds regarding k-12 teaching and administrative experience.
