Indiana's superintendent of public instruction, Harold H. Negley, resigned last week in the wake of a grand-jury investigation of his alleged misuse of campaign funds. (See Education Week, March 20, 1985.)
In an April 10 letter to Gov. Robert D. Orr announcing his immediate resignation, Mr. Negley wrote: "My personal difficulties have overshadowed the critical educational issues which face us today."
Robert Krajewski, superintendent of the East Chicago schools and a state-board member, will continue to serve as acting superintendent. Mr. Krajewski moved into that position last month when Mr. Negley took a leave of absence.
Governor Orr, who has the authority to appoint a replacement to serve out the remainder of Mr. Negley's four-year term, announced that he will act "with all deliberate speed" to name a new state superintendent.
