Skandera Confirmation Kicks Off

  In a surprise move announced just this week, the state legislature began proceedings today to confirm Hanna Skandera as New Mexico’s Secretary of Education.  Formerly the Deputy Commissioner of Education in Florida, she has served as secretary-designate since Governor Susana Martinez appointed her in 2011.  Since then she's faced criticism, and as KUNM'S Sara Van Note reports, that means her confirmation may not go smoothly.
