Vallejo native Bob Lawson believes the community has lost faith in the Vallejo City Unified School District.
Lawson hopes to restore that faith as a member of the Vallejo school board. Lawson, who taught at Vallejo High School from 1986 to 2009, announced his intention to seek a seat on the board this fall. He outlined several reasons why he is seeking the seat.
“The superintendent is ultimately responsible for the public’s perception of the district. Instead, she has attempted to scapegoat teachers, staff, and everyone else, including the Solano County Grand Jury, for the problems,” Lawson wrote in a news release announcing his campaign. “A change is needed. In sports, when the team is not doing well, you fire the manager, not the players.”
