Deval Patrick has ousted Christopher R. Anderson as chair of the state Board of Education.
In a three player trade, he sent Anderson to the Dodgers for a shortstop… no, wait.
In a three player trade, board member Henry Thomas resigned, opening a seat on the board. Patrick will appoint Paul Reville to the board and will give him the gavel. Current chair and Romney appointee Christopher Anderson will remain on the board. The governor selects the chair from the members of the board.
The Globe reports that Anderson said his dismissal as chair was “politically motivated.”
