L.A. School Superintendent Resigns

Clashed with teachers, had big scandal over iPads for students


Los Angeles Unified School District officials say Superintendent John Deasy has resigned from the nation's second-largest school system.

The resignation was announced Thursday by Deasy and the school board.

Deasy was applauded for improving student performance, but he had been under fire for technology troubles.

Under Deasy, the district had higher test scores, improved attendance and better graduation rates.
