Rudolph Franklin "Rudy" Crew (born September 10, 1950) is a public school administrator who since June 2012 is serving a three-year contract as Oregon's first Chief Education Officer. Appointed by Governor John Kitzhaber, Crew oversees the integrated public education system in Oregon from pre-kindergarten through college and career readiness.
Perhaps his most prominent job was as chancellor of the New York City Board of Education, a position he held from 1995–1999, where many educators, including Thomas Sobol, who served as the Commissioner of Education of the State of New York, believe Crew left behind an important legacy.
Famous quotes containing the word crew:
“Nor aught availed him now
To have built in heavn high towrs; nor did he scape
By all his engines, but was headlong sent
With his industrious crew to build in hell.”
—John Milton (16081674)
