LA Unified Superintendent Michelle King

After a months-long national recruitment effort, the Los Angeles Board of Education on Monday picked an insider — Deputy Superintendent Michelle King — as the district’s new superintendent.

King, 54, rose from the ranks and was a well-respected principal before joining the administration. Board members said that she impressed them in their long interviews behind closed doors and think that her inside status will help her deal with the district’s problems without delay, according to the Los Angeles Times.
