The president of the Arizona board of education resigned his post last week as a result, he said, of an ongoing feud with the state's elected schools chief, Diane Douglas.

Greg Miller issued a written statement blaming Douglas for refusing to work with the board and preventing it from implementing the policies it has adopted or assigning staff to help it do its work. A spokesman for Douglas rebutted Miller's claims.

Douglas and the board have been embroiled in controversy since shortly after she took office in January 2015. She fired the board's executive staff, a move that Gov. Doug Ducey blocked. She then sued after the board moved out of her offices into new housing in the Capitol executive tower.
