Ex-Md. schools chief to head L.A. schools?
The Los Angeles Board of Education is expected to vote Tuesday to appoint John Deasy, the former superintendent of the Prince George's County school system, as the next superintendent of the nation's second-largest school district, the Los Angeles Times reports.
Deasy would replace Ramon C. Cortines, 78, who announced last year that he would retire this spring from the system he has headed since 2008.
Deasy, who was hired to head the Prince George's school system in 2006, resigned from the job in late 2008 to take a job with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, a major force in grant-giving in the education field. Though his tenure in Prince George's was turbulent, many credited him with improving the school system.
