WBAL: Gov.-elect Larry Hogan faced with big education appointments

Maryland Gov.-elect Larry Hogan may be focused on inauguration, but he'll have some big education appointments to make in the new year.
Hogan will get to appoint at least a half dozen new members to the State Board of Education.
It's traditional for the governor to fill open seats on the state board. But for now, no one can say how soon he'll make those new appointments.
Half of the 12-member state board could be replaced before the end of the year. That includes the president, Charlene Dukes, whose term ended in 2014.
Board members are appointed by the sitting governor to four year terms with advice and consent from the senate. Besides the state school board president, board member Donna Hill-Staton term expired last year.
