Parents and advocates tapped into the ongoing superintendent search say the process hasn’t met the bar and one organization is calling to reopen the search.
Public interviews for Boston Public Schools superintendent candidates started on Monday with three finalists—Oscar Santos, Marie Izquierdo, and Brenda Cassellius—vying for the position.
But the search process has been under scrutiny by parents and community members who have cited a lack of transparency.
Rodolfo Aguilar, a parent organizer and founder of Massachusetts Parents United, said the search isn’t complete.
“I think they should reopen the search because I don’t think that the candidates … have all the qualifications needed to run the Boston public school system given the complexity of it,” Aguilar said.
