Massachusetts Early Childhood Education Commissioner Quits
The commissioner for early childhood education in Massachusetts has resigned.
Sherri Killins work to expand early childhood education opportunities during her time as commissioner was praised by many in the field. Joan Kagen, president of Square One in Springfield said Killins focused on professionalizing pre-school programs.
Killins participation in a mentoring program to train to become a school superintendent had raised questions about whether she was devoting enough time her $200,000 a year state job. Killins said her decision to step down had nothing to do with the mentoring program.
