Paul Teske on Colo. State Board of Education

Dean Paul Teske was quoted in the article “Does the State Board of Education Deserve a Failing Grade?” in Westword on Oct. 18, 2016. “It’s relatively rare for a state to have an elected board that then appoints the commissioner without the governor being involved in any way, shape or form,” says Paul Teske, dean of the School of Public Affairs at the University of Colorado Denver, who has studied various states’ models. Only Kansas and Colorado have partisan-elected boards and commissioners chosen by that board. That model, Teske says, historically makes for a “very politicized board.”
