State Board of Education member Angela Thi Bennett has resigned because she expects to take on a new job with a charter school, Gongwer News Service reports. Bennett is a lawyer and was appointed by Gov. John Kasich in Feb. 2011.
With her resignation, there are now three vacancies on the 19-member board that Kasich has not yet filled. An at-large seat has been vacant since January. The elected seat held by the late Jeff Hardin has been vacant since Hardin’s death in March.
