Bersin left that job in 1998 to take the helm of the San Diego city schools, the state's second-largest school system. He was an outsider to public education with no formal training in the field.
He brought swift and sometimes wrenching change. In his first year as superintendent, he stripped more than a dozen principals and assistant principals of their duties, a move that infuriated many and triggered a lawsuit that the district recently lost.
He secured about $40 million in grants from philanthropists, including Bill Gates and Eli Broad, who made his funding of a principal-training program contingent on Bersin remaining superintendent.
