Statement from Commissioner MaryEllen Elia on the Re-Election of Chancellor Betty A. Rosa and Regent Judith Chin to the New York State Board of Regents

“I am absolutely thrilled that Chancellor Betty Rosa and Regent Judith Chin have been re-elected to another term on the NYS Board of Regents. Both Chancellor Rosa and Regent Chin are lifelong educators who have worked tirelessly on behalf of New York’s students, teachers, and school leaders. Under Chancellor Rosa’s leadership, the Regents have overseen the adoption of new, rigorous learning standards that will prepare students for the challenges of the 21st century; made common-sense changes to the State assessments; and developed a State ESSA plan that fosters greater equity throughout New York’s education system. For each of these critical advances, Chancellor Rosa, Regent Chin and every member of the Board of Regents took a collaborative, deliberative and transparent approach, engaging parents, teachers and the public at every step in the process. Today’s re-election of Chancellor Rosa and Regent Chin is great news for the State’s three million students, their families and indeed all New Yorkers.”
