Board Clerk Kristel Foster said she backed the choice of Sanchez because “his values are grounded in our community. He shares our values.”

Sanchez is the “very best person” for the job of all who applied, she said.

Hmmm….maybe she can share with us who those people were? Maybe?

Board President Adelita Grijalva cited Sanchez’s “knowledge and expertise” in explaining her support.

With TUSD having so many Hispanic students, it’s important that they have a leader fluent in Spanish, “who can speak to them without an interpreter,” she said.

So, I guess TUSD isn’t teaching English anymore. I guess that’s not surprising since they dumped the history requirement, too, and allowed the reconquista indoctrination classes to substitute.
