The Roundtable: Fixing Sweetwater Union High School District
June 24, 2011 1:38 p.m.
Will a leadership change fix the Sweetwater Union High School District's problems? Late Tuesday night, the Sweetwater school board terminated the contract of Superintendent Jesus Gandara after a series of San Diego Union-Tribune stories questioned some of his management practices. Sweetwater has appointed an interim superintendent, who has pledged to address the district's problems in his first 30 days. We discuss what has plagued Sweetwater in recent months, and what can be done to get the district back on track.
