SCUSD Observer

Sacramento, California

Do you believe him?

In today’s Inside City Hall feature of the Sacramento Bee, Ryan Lillis reports that Mayor Kevin Johnson wants a bigger role in the way city schools operate. Johnson has plans to raise private money to hire an education liaison who would act as an intermediary between the mayor’s office and the city schools.

“Something very powerful that will unite the school districts under one common vision.” (Johnson’s words).

A thing or a person, KJ?


All this talk about a City Hall education wonk raised the question of whether Johnson had given any thought to taking over city schools, much as some big-time East Coast mayors have done.

No way, says Johnson.

“What’s on my radar is the mayor playing a critical role in our schools,” he said.

Something else on KJ’s radar? Sandbagging City Attorney Eileen Teichert.
