Education board confirmation draws criticism

Charter school advocates voice concerns


Hassan praised Duncan’s confirmation as did state Board of Education Chairman Thomas Raffio, who said the software company founder’s business experience and knowledge of educational issues would be an asset to the board.

Hassan lauded Duncan for those qualities as well.
