Interim Education Director Named

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -- Gov. Terry Branstad has picked an interim director for the Iowa Department of Education.
   Branstad announced Tuesday that Duane "D.T." Magee will run the department while the state looks for a permanent replacement for outgoing Director Jason Glass.
   Magee will continue to hold his position as executive director of the Iowa Board of Educational Examiners.
   Glass said last month that he would be leaving to become superintendent of a Colorado school district. He had served as director since late 2010 and took the lead in backing education reforms that were approved by lawmakers in May.
   Glass' last day is June 21 and Magee will start June 24.
   Branstad spokesman Tim Albrecht says the governor hopes to name a permanent director by the start of the 2013 school year.
