A Message from the Alabama State Superintendent of Education

A Message from the Alabama State Superintendent of Education

A Message from Dr. Eric Mackey, Alabama State Superintendent for Education: "If you follow my tweets, you may have noticed me posting pictures of the sunset from my office view. Those sunsets mark the end of long days in the office that almost always lead to long evenings at home. When March blew in one short month ago, we could not have imagined that we would face the largest disruption in education in modern history."
