A core group of Gov. Rick Perry's business supporters are making a strong push to install Sandy Kress as the next state's Commissioner of Education. Over the last dozen years, Kress has been the most significant face for the education arm of the Governor's Business Council . If selected, Kress would be the fourth commissioner of education during Gov. Perry's term in office.
While Business is pushing Kress, Conservatives with strong ties to the State Board of Education have lunched an active campaign against him.
Is Sandy Kress, former President of the Dallas Independent School District's Board of Education, the right person to assume the role of Commissioner of Education?
