Day One - RI’s New Education Commissioner
First day on the job and Rhode Island’s new Education commissioner is already on the move. Angelica Infante-Green started her first day by visiting the Harry Kizirian school in Providence.
There has been much talk about the state possibly taking over the Providence school system after Governor Raimondo announced a special team to report on Providence Schools. But Infante-Green made it clear that she wants to work with the Providence school system, not take it over.
The Commissioner was greeted by the children of Harry Kizirian with signs in 20 different languages.
She began the day by participating in Providence’s Walking School Bus and walking with young children to school.
