Bersin To Lead State’s Education Department

Alan Bersin, the controversial superintendent of the San Diego Unified School District, has been appointed as secretary of education and to the state Board of Education by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Bersin has been San Diego Unified School District superintendent since 1998. Earlier this year, he negotiated an early release from his contract, which originally was due to expire on June 30, 2006. He now will be leaving on June 30 of this year.

From 2000 to 2003, Bersin was a member and chair of the Commission on Teacher Credentialing. He was U.S. attorney for the Southern District of California from 1993 to 1998; and served as the U.S. attorney general’s southwest border representative from 1995 to 1998.

Bersin, who will assume office on July 1, replaces former Los Angeles Mayor Richard Riordan, who recently resigned and will be leaving office on June 30. Bersin will immediately begin serving on the Board of Education.

A resident of San Diego and a Democrat, Bersin, 58, earned his law degree from Yale Law School and a bachelor’s degree from Harvard, and studied at Balliol College at Oxford University as a Rhodes Scholar.

The secretary of education, which does not require Senate confirmation, pays $123,255. Members of the Board of Education must be confirmed, and the pay is $100 per diem.
