CCSSO President/NC Superintendent Elect To Become Longest Serving Educrat

NC’s Superintendent who is also the new confirmed CCSSO President is about to become the longest termed Superintendent in the country.  Atkinson was CCSSO President-elect up until the 14th of November.



Atkinson was made President-elect in 2013. As of November, 14th she is now President.

That’s a lot of political dodging and weaving to stay in the top Educrat spot in NC, but for how much longer? Speculations are Atkinson won’t run in 2016.

I think it would be a fair assessment that Dr. Atkinson is in education the equivalent of a career politician.

Given her significant role in bringing Common Core to North Carolina and the subsequent firestorm, perhaps she’ll be heading to a cushy Gates-tied job like former Governor Perdue.
