Capitol Alert

The latest on California politics and government

Gloria Romero.JPGDemocratic Sen. Gloria Romero has locked in a post-election job as the head of Democrats for Education Reform California.

Romero will launch the California chapter of the advocacy group and political action committee, which, like Romero, is known for supporting charter schools.

Democrats for Education Reform, formed in 2007, currently has chapters in New York, New Jersey, Rhode Island, Michigan, Ohio, Wisconsin, Missouri, and Colorado

"Gloria recognizes the destructiveness of California's achievement gap, and she's committed to closing it for the benefit of all of the state's young people. There's simply no better person to steer our Golden State expansion," Executive Director Joe Williams said in a statement.

The Senate Education Committee chairwoman, who is termed-out of her Los Angeles Senate seat, lost a primary bid for state superintendent of public instruction.
