Veteran New Mexico educator Jesse L. Gonzales on Wednesday was formally named superintendent of the state-managed Compton Unified School District, and immediately urged the complete return of authority to the locally elected school board. After signing a three-year, $165,000-per-year contract, Gonzales, the 63-year-old superintendent in Las Cruces, N.M., suggested he might ask the state Legislature to remove the Department of Education from overseeing the district.
