MIAMI (AP) - The former Miami-Dade Schools Chief - who had
fallen out of favor with several board members over the state of district finances - has a new job.
Rudy Crew is now a professor at the University of Southern California. University officials said Friday he will be working with doctoral students in education. Crew said in a press release he was "honored and excited" about the opportunity.
Crew accepted a $368,000 buyout package from the Miami-Dade district in September.
In his new job, Crew will help to recruit students and build partnerships with community agencies.
Previously, Crew served as chancellor of the New York City Public Schools. Last year he was named Superintendent of the Year by the American Association of School Administrators.
