Randy Dorn

Randy Dorn, the schools superintendent in Washington state, announced last week that he will not seek a third term in office.

In his announcement, Dorn criticized the state legislature for failing to act to finance public education, and the court for not following through with forceful punishments against the legislature.

Before being elected superintendent in 2008, he was the executive director of the Public School Employees of Washington and was an elementary and middle school teacher, a principal, and a state lawmaker.
