BRIDGEPORT - A state judge has ordered Bridgeport Superintendent Paul Vallas to be removed from his position.
The court ruled that Vallas failed to complete a school leadership program required by state law. In a statement, he said that he will "focus on improving schools for students desperately in need of a better education."
He added that the district should remain focused on this goal.
