TUCSON – Tucson Unified School District Governing Board member Mark Stegeman announced his resignation from the board on a local radio program on Thursday. He said his resignation was effective immediately.
Stegeman, an Economics professor at the University of Arizona, has said for some time that he had no confidence that the District’s leadership had the willingness or ability to make the necessary changes to turn the failing organization around.
Stegeman, who had support of democrats and republicans, was easily reelected in 2016. His position will need to be filled by an appointee of Pima County School Superintendent Dustin Williams.
