Stefan Pryor to leave education post after one term
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."
