Tim Kremer, executive director of the New York State School Boards Association, is welcoming today's election of Dr. Betty Rosa to head the Board of Regents. Kremer spoke with WAMC's Ian Pickus after the Board of Regents chose Rosa as chancellor. Rosa, a former superintendent from the Bronx, replaces Merryl Tisch, who's stepping down from the board after 20 years, the last seven as its leader. The board elected T. Andrew Brown as vice chancellor.

While some issues come and go at the state capitol in Albany, education always remains on the agenda for the governor and the state legislature, and this year will be no different. The theme of Governor Andrew Cuomo’s State of the State address on Wednesday was “ built to lead,” but Tim Kremer, executive director of the New York State School Boards Association says a better description might be a work in progress.
