The Chicago Principals and Administrators Association has elected controversial Chicago Public Schools principal Troy LaRaviere as its president.
According to election results posted on the association's website, LaRaviere won with 69.1 percent of the vote. He went up against Ken Hunter, a retired principal from Prosser Career Academy.
LaRaviere -- an outspoken critic of Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel and CPS -- was removed from his principal position at Blaine Elementary School in Lakeview last month as he faces charges from the district involving insubordination, dereliction of duty and ethics violations. He was reassigned to his home, and has since been suspended without pay, as the disciplinary process plays out.
LaRaviere has pushed back on the district's charges pending against him, calling them "politically motivated."
