A likely choice for Ledesma and his board majority is Mr. Stefan Bean who has local experience as a superintendent, principal and director of charter schools. He also serves as a director of the charter school, Orange County Classical Academy where Ms. Miner sends her children.
Bean’s views are so extreme, even the Orange County Register Editorial Board did not endorse him in his unsuccessful run for OC Superintendent of Schools in 2022. His failure to substantiate his outrageous claim that public schools are teaching “inappropriate sexual matters” at the kindergarten level was a “red flag” for even the OC Register’s editorial board.
