California’s State Superintendent of Schools Tony Thurmond is calling all parties to the table to work through the impasse in the Sacramento City Unified District. The district is in what Thurmond characterizes as "severe fiscal deficit."
A one day strike is scheduled for May 22. On Monday, Thurmond said in a press release that he hopes the strike can be avoided and that state receivership can be also avoided. Thurmond says all entities have agreed to be in the same room.
One of those entities is the Sacramento County Superintendent, David Gordon. Gordon joins Insight host, Beth Ruyak, to talk, in part, about Sacramento City Unified, but more broadly, about state receivership, a discussion Ruyak started last week with Caryn Moore from the State Department of Education.
