Courant education writer Kathleen Megan writes:

The Senate on Thursday confirmed the appointment of Andrea Comer to the state Board of Education.

\"andreaComer’s nomination to the board by Gov. Dannel Malloy drew criticism from the state’s teachers union because she is an administrator for charter schools. But her nomination sailed through both the House of Representatives and the Senate.

Comer is chief operating officer for the charter school group Family Urban Schools of Excellence, or FUSE, the Hartford organization that manages Jumoke Academy.

A former Hartford Board of Education member, Comer resigned as communications director for Mayor Pedro Segarra last April to take the job with FUSE. Between 2009 and 2011, she was community outreach director for the charter school group, Achievement First. She was a Courant reporter and copy editor in the 1990s.

“I’m honored that Governor Malloy thought enough of me to give me this opportunity,” Comer said Thursday after her appointment. “I’m looking forward to advocating in the best interest of Connecticut children from a state policy perspective.”
