pollNow that Michelle King has been hired as LA Unified’s new superintendent, it’s time to ask if the school board made the right decision.

King, 54, who has worked for the district since 1984 and has been its No. 2 administrator since 2011, was chosen over several outside candidates, including San Francisco schools Supt. Richard Carranza and Kelvin Adams, superintendent of public schools in St. Louis.

She becomes the first black female to ever run LAUSD and the first woman at the helm of the district since 1929 and comes in with rich experience as a teacher, principal and administrator. But what do you think of the decision? Was it a good one? The wrong one?
