YORK, Pa. (AP) - The man brought in to help turn around York City’s schools has quit after more than two years.

The York Daily Record/Sunday News reported Friday (https://bit.ly/1EIgD9C ) that David Meckley resigned from the chief recovery officer post he’s held since late 2012.

Meckley tells the paper a recovery plan announced in December that involves some charter schools isn’t viable because of opposition to charters by Gov. Tom Wolf.

Meckley was hired by Democrat Wolf’s predecessor, Republican Gov. Tom Corbett.

Corbett’s Education Department in December got a local judge to name Meckley as the schools’ receiver, a post that would have given him the ability to convert to charter schools without approval from the school board.

The district appealed, and a state court put the appointment on hold.
