Texas education commissioner will resign Jan. 1

Texas Commissioner of Education Michael Williams will resign effective Jan. 1, according to a letter he sent to Gov. Greg Abbott on Thursday.

Williams, who has been the head of the state’s public education system since 2012, said he will be returning to Arlington. Before becoming the education commissioner, he was a member of the Railroad Commission of Texas.

“While carrying out my responsibilities, I have kept my house in Arlington and managed to maintain a long-distance partnership with my wife. But after more than 16 years of weekend commuting, I feel it is finally time to simply head home,” he said.

This is the second public education leadership shakeup this month. On Oct. 2, U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan announced that he would be resigning in December.
