Oregon Schools Chief Rob Saxton Resigns

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) – Oregon schools chief Rob Saxton says he’s leaving for another job at the end of June.
Former Gov. John Kitzhaber chose Saxton in July 2012 to head public schools. BEFORE THEN, IT WAS AN ELECTED POSITION. The men sought to begin an ambitious plan to significantly increase the number of students who get a college degree. Saxton’s departure comes less than two months after Kitzhaber resigned. Saxton said in a letter to state Department of Education employees that he’s accepted a two-year contract to become superintendent of the Northwest Regional Education Service District.
