Gray taps non-locals for schools spots

By Washington Post Editors

Nikita Stewart reports on the D.C. Wire blog that Mayor-elect Vincent C. Gray named an aide to Newark Mayor Cory Booker to be the city's deputy mayor of education, and an education guru who has worked in Wisconsin, Atlanta and Chicago to be the new state superintendent of education.

De'Shawn Wright, a founding partner of the Newark Charter School fund and senior adviser to Booer, will replace Deputy Mayor Victor Reinoso.

Hosanna Mahaley, who most recently worked as executive director of social justice and district innovation at the Wireless Generation in Milwaukee, will oversee schools at what the city government calls the state level.

Mahaley, a former pre-algebra teacher, was formerly chief of staff in Chicago public schools.
