King Elementary is under the microscope. The former principal, Kim Patterson, who was responsible for many reforms at the K-8 school, stepped down just before the school year to begin a new job at the Oregon Department of Education; Eryn Berg has been chosen to succeed Patterson who held the post since 2010. This all comes amid extensive investigations into plummeting test scores at the northeast Portland school.
