Sacramento, CA — California´s top education official is stepping down.
Education Secretary Richard Riordan submitted his resignation to the Governor´s office last month saying he plans to return to Los Angeles.
Riordan agreed to stay in his position until a replacement could be found. Riordan said it was a “privilege to serve” under Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, and he is looking forward to working with him “throughout his time as governor.”
Riordan was appointed to the secretary´s position last November. Riordan also campaigned actively for Schwarzenegger during the state´s recall election.
