Seeking to address complaints about the makeup of his new education reform commission, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo has added five additional members to the panel in advance of its first meeting later this month. The commission now includes a parent advocate from Rochester, a newly elected school board member from the Adirondacks and a district superintendent from Central New York. The first meeting is scheduled for June 26.
Richard D. Parsons, a New York businessman, was named chairman of a new state education commission by Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo. Panel members include Randi Weingarten, Geoffrey Canada and John B. King Jr., but no parent advocates.
A suspect has been arrested in the murder of Yale pharmacology graduate student Annie Le. Raymond Clark, who the police called a "person of interest" in the investigation earlier in the week, was taken into custody after DNA evidence linked him to the killing of Le. Clark was a lab technician in the building where Le worked and where her body was found on Sunday. According to police, a digital trail of swipe card access records led them to suspect Clark, who was then found with scratch marks on his body, police say. He is being held on a $3 million bond. Le was to be married the day her body was found. The Yale community has been deeply shaken by the crime. Thomas Kaplan, the editor of the Yale Daily News, gives us his reaction.
Authorities found what they believe to be the body of 24-year-old Yale student Annie Le, in an ongoing investigation of her disappearance. Ms. Le, a pharmacology student, went missing on Tuesday and was last seen in the research lab where she worked.
Here to tell us more about the details, and how Yale students are reacting as they head to class this morning, we talk to Thomas Kaplan, editor of the Yale Daily News.
