Lawmakers should override Malloy veto of ed commissioner qualifications

The Connecticut legislature was right to enact legislation which would require an education commissioner to have a minimum of five years of classroom experience and three years of school administration. In fact, the vast majority of states require some level of experience or background in order to be qualified to lead the appropriate state agency. The legislature should stand firm when it convenes on Monday for its veto session to ensure that Connecticut joins these ranks.
