The Game – 254 – Superintendent Candidates for San Mateo County

Who is going to lead San Mateo County’s schools into the future?​ The two candidates for the county’s top schools chief are here. The Game is Education, The Game is on.

Low pay, long hours, achievement gaps – teachers face any number of difficult challenges and increased expectations to prepare our children for a complex economic and employment environment. Two candidates – Nancy Magee and Gary Waddell — are running for the one office where all these issues come together – San Mateo County Superintendent of Schools. It is the only truly contested countywide race on the ballot.

Nancy Magee is Associate Superintendent of Student Services in the County Office of Education, which means she is in charge of the direct programs that affect student life, including the complex issue of ensuring students are safe at school. Gary Waddell is Deputy Superintendent of Instructional Services and Curriculum, which means he is responsible for ensuring schools carry out mandated state educational programs. Both have an extensive background in education and throughout the show, we’ll be putting up their campaign website addresses so you can learn more.
