Republican Gov. Glenn Youngkin has hired a Tennessee education official to serve as Virginia’s chief schools officer after the previous employee in that role resigned for reasons the administration has declined to explain. The Virginia Department of Education said in a news release Wednesday that Tennessee Chief Academic Officer Lisa Coons will take over the role of superintendent of public instruction effective April 17. Coons’ hiring was announced less than a month after Jillian Balow announced she was stepping down from the post. In Coons’ most recent job in Tennessee, she led all birth to grade-12 academic programming.
