California education 'equity' official resigns because she lives in Texas
Kadakia is the second California education equity official to depart in recent weeks.
The California Department of Education's equity project manager has resigned due to the fact she lives in Texas.
California law mandates that state employees live there unless they need to live in another location for their work, such as lobbying in D.C.
Kadakia is the second California education equity official to depart in recent weeks. The Golden State's first superintendent of equity, Daniel Lee, resigned earlier this month. Politico reported how Lee lived in Philadelphia while collecting a salary of more than $161,000 from the state of California.
The California Department of Education issued a statement Thursday to Politico, confirming that Kadakia left the agency.
"We sought to ensure that all our personnel were in line with the new guidance," the department stated. “In doing so, we accepted Ms. Kadakia’s resignation."
