Just days after being named one of the top two finalists for the school superintendent job in Madison, Wisconsin, Springfield school superintendent Walter Milton has withdrawn his name from consideration for that post.
Milton made the decision Tuesday night, just two days before he and the other finalist were scheduled to meet with the public in Madison as part of the final interview process.
Milton told Madison school officials that the job was, quote, not the right fit.
But the Wisconsin State Journal reports that Milton’s withdrawal came after Madison officials raised new questions about his prior work history, including hiring practices and questions about reimbursements.
Milton remains under contract with District 186 through the summer of 2014.
