Ron Huberman, the gay man who is CEO of the Chicago public schools, may step down from that post in the near future.
The Chicago Sun-Timesreported Wednesday that Huberman had met with Mayor Richard M. Daley and announced his intention to move on before Daley leaves office in mid May, saying he did not wish to work for another mayor. Daley, who has been mayor since 1989, has decided not to seek another term.
Huberman, confronted by reporters outside a Chicago elementary school, denied that his departure was imminent, although he was not certain he would stay on with a new mayor.
Huberman became CEO of the Chicago schools in 2009, when predecessor Arne Duncan was named President Obama’s secretary of Education. Chicago has the nation’s third-largest public school district, with more than 400,000 students.
