Interim State Superintendent Named

Interim State Superintendent Named”

The Alabama Board of Education has named former Superintendent Ed Richardson as interim superintendent of education.

He previously held the job and also served as president of Auburn University and held an interim position with Birmingham City Schools.

Richardson served as the Alabama State Superintendent from 1995-2004. Governor Kay Ivey says Richardson will provide a steady hand while the state searches for a permanent replacement.

We will use the pending resignation of the state superintendent as an opportunity to move forward and begin a new chapter in public education.

Richardson fills the void left Michael Sentance who resigned from the State Superintendent post on Wednesday following months of the board questioning his communication and management skills. He led the state's schools for nearly a decade beginning in the mid 1990s, coming from a 13-year stint at the helm of Auburn City Schools, long considered one of the better school systems in the state. Fellow Montgomery school board member, Arica Watkins, explains "we always got the message that they were in charge and we were to take a back seat".
