Top Metro schools administrator resigns

By Natalia Mielczarek • Staff Writer Tennessean • February 15, 2008 One of Metro school district’s top administrators, Ben Wright, submitted his resignation this afternoon, effective March 21, the district’s communications office said. Wright, who was hired seven months ago, oversaw principals, area directors and guidance counselors, career and technical education and magnet schools. The district didn’t give a reason for Wright’s resignation. A call placed to Wright this afternoon hasn’t been returned. Wright’s resignation comes weeks after the departure of the schools Director Pedro Garcia, who was released from his contract after more than six year. The 75,000-student district is now looking for an interim direction and is likely to launch a national search for the permanent position this spring.
