David Hespe, New Jersey's education commissioner, has resigned after slightly more than two years on the job.

He led the state through its rewriting of the Common Core State Standards, new teacher and principal evaluations, and the return of some decisionmaking to state-run urban districts. He also expanded the charter sector and oversaw the implementation of online common-core-aligned testing. New Jersey has had five education commissioners in seven years.
