Guam - Governor Eddie Calvo's appointees to the Guam Education Board will finally go up for their confirmation hearing. Scheduled to appear before the Committee of Education, chaired by Speaker Judi Won Pat, are Dr. Anita Enriquez, Paul Pineda, Barry Mead and former senator Francis Santos.

Tuesday's confirmation hearing starts at 4 in the afternoon. It's critical the board appointees get confirmed as soon as a possible so they can join the rest of the Board in finalizing the Department of Education's Fiscal Year 2012 budget.

DOE is requesting $287 million, a significantly higher amount than this fiscal year's budget. We should also add the current board is unable to act because it lacks quorum.
