Stefan Pryor to Leave Education Post After One Term

By Mark Pazniokas

Stefan Pryor announced today he will not seek another term as state education commissioner and is seeking a new job—a step that could diminish some of the teacher dissatisfaction with the administration of Gov. Dannel P. Malloy as the governor seeks re-election. Image

“Having served for nearly three fulfilling years as Commissioner, I have decided to conclude my tenure by the end of this Administration’s current term and to pursue new professional opportunities,” Pryor said in a statement. “Because I believe it’s important to communicate my decision proactively to the Governor and the public, I am doing so now.”

Malloy, who had resisted calls for Pryor to resign, praised the commissioner.

“Commissioner Pryor has worked hard and well on behalf of Connecticut students,” Malloy said. “In the three years he’s led the department, we’ve taken tremendous steps forward to improve education, with a particular focus on the districts that have long needed the most help.”
