On Thursday, September 8, 2016, the Alabama State School Board approved the contract of Michael Sentance of Massachusetts to be Alabama’s next State School Superintendent. The decision on August 8 to make Sentence, who has never actually been a school superintendent anywhere before, has been wildly controversial. On Friday, September 9, State School Board member Betty Peters (R) defended the decision to select Sentence in a column on the anti-Common Core blog site: Truth in American Education.com.
