The Newport News School Board in Virginia has voted to remove district superintendent George Parker III following the shooting of a teacher by a 6-year-old student. The decision was made in response to community demands for accountability, and Parker will be replaced by Michele Mitchell. He had been praised for his efforts to improve school safety and reduce the achievement gap, and his removal is seen as a major setback for the district.
