GPSN Executive Director Myrna Castrejón Statement on Retirement of L.A. Unified Supt. Michelle King
January 5, 2018 (Los Angeles, CA)- On behalf of Great Public Schools Now, I thank Michelle King for her dedication to improving education for all students in Los Angeles. She is a pioneer and a role model, and I particularly admire her as a woman of color in a leadership role in education. Supt. King has been a champion for children for her entire career, and Great Public Schools Now was proud to partner with her to replicate two of South Los Angeles’ highest performing schools so that even more students will have a chance attend a high-performing school.
The entire Great Public Schools Now team wishes Supt. King strength as she focuses on her recovery, and we will continue to work with L.A. Unified leadership to advance Supt. King’s mission of putting children first.
