Former Randolph Public Schools Superintendent Oscar Santos emphasized his Boston roots and his experience as a classroom teacher and school leader in Boston in his interview with the Boston School Committee Wednesday.
“I understand this city,” he said in his closing remarks to the School Committee. “I grew up in this city. I have family in this city. I have nephews, nieces who are in the Boston public schools. I understand how important this job is, I understand the hard work ahead. And I want you to understand that I am 100 percent committed to doing this work.”
In their questions, School Committee members drilled down on Santos’ ideas and his record as head of the Randolph school system.
“You talked about your relationship with the town manager,” School Committee member Michael O’Neill said. “You didn’t talk about your relationship with the [Randolph] School Committee.”
