Los Angeles superintendent plans to resign

Oct. 25, 2013
John Deasy has reportedly told school board members that he will quit his job in February.

The Los Angeles Times is reporting that Los Angeles school superintendent John Deasy has told Board of Education members that he plans to resign in February. Deasy has led the nation's second largest school district since January 2011. He joined Los Angeles Unified the year before as a deputy superintendent. Deasy was closely allied with former Mayor Antonio Villaraiogsa, who left office this year because of term limits. Deasy’s political position weakened further in recent school board elections, when two candidates backed by Deasy allies lost.
