L.A. Superintendent John Deasy Resigns; Ramon Cortines Named Interim Chief

The Los Angeles Unified school board on Thursday officially accepted the resignation of Superintendent John Deasy and voted to appoint his predecessor, Ramon Cortines, to fill the post on an interim basis.

As head of the city school system, Deasy oversaw a continued rise in student performance, but he could not overcome election day setbacks, poor relations with teachers, and two back-to-back technology debacles.
