Oregon Chief Education Officer Nancy Golden to retire

August 25th, 2015

Nancy Golden, who for two years has overseen public education in Oregon from preschool to college, will retire in two weeks, Gov. Kate Brown announced Monday.
Lindsey Capps, 40, a former teachers union leader who is Brown's education adviser, will succeed Golden, 64, in an interim capacity while continuing as adviser to the governor, Brown's office said. Capps previously served as Golden's chief of staff for seven months.
Golden, a former superintendent of Springfield schools with decades of experience in Oregon public education, was chosen by former Gov. John Kitzhaber to serve as Oregon's second chief education officer.
Golden succeeded Rudy Crew, who became a lightning rod for criticism of his leadership style and the job itself. He quit after slightly more than a year to take a college presidency in New York City.
