Stefan Pryor to leave education post after one term

Another ed reform warrior, Stefan Pryor, Connecticut's Education Commissioner, is also departing by the end of the year (while this is old news – it was announced in August – I somehow missed it). This is another great loss for children (but, like Huffman, I'm sure a temporary one!):

The Northeast Charter Schools Network, advocacy group for charter schools in New York and Connecticut, issued a statement saying that Pryor would be missed:

"Commissioner Pryor's departure will be a loss for Connecticut and its school children. During his tenure, Connecticut became a beacon for public education reform by expanding access to more high quality public charter schools, increasing funding for turning around perennially failing schools and districts, all while creating a climate of greater accountability for student learning. Connecticut's children have been the most direct beneficiaries of this work."
