The California Charter Schools Association (CCSA) issued the following statement in response to the resignation of LAUSD Superintendent Dr. Michelle King:

"As a Los Angeles Unified graduate, life-long public-school educator, and the first African American woman to lead the district, Dr. Michelle King's work in public education in Los Angeles has been truly inspiring. As Superintendent, Dr. King spearheaded new and innovative efforts to improve Los Angeles' public education system, including the District's first-ever Promising Practices Forum, which brought L.A. Unified charter school and district educators together to share best practices. Dr. King has been a strong supporter of education choice and the replication of innovative school models to best meet the needs of each student. We thank Dr. King for her decades of fighting for our students. Our thoughts are with Dr. King and her family during this difficult time."
