Hull chief to retire

16th February 2001 at 00:00
JOAN Taylor, the education director of Hull, will take early retirement in July. Ms Taylor,54, who faced criticism for failing to get the city off the bottom of the GCSE league tables during her four-years at the helm, will step down before this year's results are published. She has dened that a campaign by the local newspaper had forced her to resign and dismissed reports that she would be leaving immediately. In a TES interview last month, Ms Taylor said that while last year's results had "devastated her", she was determined to push improvements forward.
