Watchdog Wire has learned that Colorado Commissioner of Education Robert Hammond has a potential conflict of interest, springing from his membership on a board of a non-profit doing business with the state.
Hammond has a dual role on the governing board of Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Career (PARCC), a non-profit that stands to benefit from the state’s participation in its national testing consortium.
