First Black School Head in South to Resign Post

Associated Press

School Supt. Alonzo A. Crim, the first black to head a major urban school district in the South, announced Friday that he will resign his post next year. Crim, who attributed the decision to personal goals, was brought to Atlanta in 1973 as part of a compromise desegregation plan that emphasized the promotion of black administrators.
