'I've got your back, Jorge.' Mayor Darrell Steinberg issues statement supporting Sacramento schools chief
Regarding the article on The Sacramento Bee website today, I want to say that I fully support Sacramento City Unified School District Superintendent Jorge Aguilar.
He is dynamic, committed, and focused like a laser on what truly matters: genuine equity for all our children.
We need him to succeed.
He inherited a severe financial crisis. Our city needs all the district’s key partners — teachers, classified employees, parents, community members, and students— to rally behind a common cause. Get through this crisis, make hard choices, and prepare for a better day when the district can begin to reinvest in our children.
I’ve got your back, Jorge, and the city and I stand ready to help.
