New job for ex-Pr. Geo. schools' chief
Former Prince George's County school superintendent John Deasy was hired Tuesday as deputy superintendent of the Los Angeles Unified School District, the Los Angeles Times is reporting.
Deasy resigned from Prince George's County 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.
The previous deputy superintendent of the Los Angeles school system, Ramon Cortines, became superintendent late 2008, and there is speculation that Deasy could succeed Cortines as the head of the nation's second-largest system.
