Former Baltimore school Superintendent Richard C. Hunter is among 10 semifinalists for the job of Orange County, Fla., school superintendent.
Hunter left the Baltimore job when his three-year contract was up at the end of July, after policy disagreements with Mayor Kurt L. Schmoke. He returned to a professor's post at the University of North Carolina and was among those picked from a list of 54 applicants for the Florida job.
The Florida list includes three others who were candidates to replace Hunter earlier this year.
They are Charles Bernardo, a Florida education consultant who became a finalist for the Baltimore job; Leonard Britton, consultant and former Los Angeles superintendent; and Alfred Tutela, consultant and former Cleveland superintendent.
