People: Meet Liz King, The "New" Dianne Piche

One of the few interesting tidbits in this week's coverage of the House passage of the new ESEA conference report is a quote from Liz King at the Leadership Conference on Civil Rights.

6c6c6e73-dd91-4a7c-8786-3773ec58618c"I don’t think I’ve ever been in the NYT before," King told me via email. "I’m not sure, but I think I sound cooler if I don’t know."

She says she's filling the job Dianne Piche used to have (and Dave Goldberg before that). 

Josh Porter works on education with King -- another name that's new to me.

According to this 2013 Roll Call profile (From Middle School to Fattah's Office), King grew up near Chicago, taught in Philadelphia with TFA then worked for Rep. Chaka Fattah.

According to this Cloaking Inequality blog post (Who’s the William Wallace of testing?) King is the anti-Jesse Hagopian who is concerned about parents opting out and "loves testing."
