DeRay Mckesson will be settling back in Baltimore as the interim chief of human capital at Baltimore City Schools.
The Black Lives Matter activist and failed candidate for mayor of Baltimore will be earning $165,000 a year as one of the first cabinet picks of Sonja Santelises.
His appointment was affirmed by the Board of School Commissioners last night. He and Santelises will start on Friday.
Meanwhile, Baltimore city schools budget is in trouble and is looking at a $60 million deficit. Just like Chicago Public Schools and Detroit Public Schools, both of which are having to be bailed out by their legislatures.
