Louisiana’s Superintendent of Education, Paul Pastorek, has resigned. Pastorek served on the State Board of Elementary and Secondary Education from 1996 to 2004. He was appointed to the Superintendent position in 2007. New Orleans representative Austin Badon, chairman of the house Education Committee, was surprised and saddened by Pastorek’s departure. Pastorek had been a lightening rod for controversy during his career, drawing fire form lawmakers and teachers groups for his strong stands on education reform. Badon says the reform measures Pastorek put into motion will continue.
As the search for a replacement for a successor begins Badon believes the next Superintendent is someone already working in the Department of Education.
