Jed Wallace, president and CEO of the California Charter Schools Association (CCSA), issued the following statement today on the departure of John Deasy as Superintendent of the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD):

During his tenure as Superintendent of the Los Angeles Unified School District, John Deasy has been remarkably focused on improving outcomes for all students, including those in charter schools. John continuously showed a great bias toward action and urgency that many simply don't have. He has been committed to strengthening L.A.'s schools in order to lift children and families out of poverty. We appreciate his willingness to work with all public school students, including those attending charter public schools, in the midst of a challenging and ever-changing education landscape.
