Phil Scott appoints Zoie Saunders as interim education secretary following Vermont Senate rejection

Education Secretary Zoie Saunders was not confirmed by the Vermont Senate, with 19 senators voting against her appointment. Despite this rejection, Governor Phil Scott immediately appointed Saunders as interim secretary of education, stating his confidence in her leadership. It remains unclear whether Scott will formally nominate her again, but he implied she would serve in the role indefinitely. The Senate faced pressure from constituents and various groups opposing Saunders due to her background with a for-profit corporation and limited experience in public education. The outcome of this contentious nomination remains uncertain.
