Connecticut's education commissioner, Stefan Pryor, will leave his position by January, Mr. Pryor and Gov. Dannel P. Malloy announced last week.

During his three-year tenure, Mr. Pryor worked with the governor to boost resources for early education and worked to expand the state's network of charter schools. But he was attacked for his deep-rooted and extensive support for charter schools.

Before his time as the state's K-12 chief, Mr. Pryor worked as the deputy mayor for economic development in Newark, N.J., and held jobs at the Lower Manhattan Development Corp. and the Partnership for New York City. He also co-founded a charter school in New Haven, Conn.
