Pima County Schools Superintendent Linda Arzoumanian has done a fine job over the past eight years and should be re-elected to continue that work.
Even her election opponent, Tom Rogers, agrees with that assessment, saying he is running primarily to promote Libertarian and school reform ideas.
The county superintendent’s job, however, is not to make policy. Rather, it is to serve 15 of the county’s 17 school districts with oversight of bookkeeping, accounting, teacher certification and, in some cases, transportation, among other functions.
Arzoumanian, a Republican, has done that and more, such as lobbying for the local Joint Technological Educa-tion District. Her work reflects her dedication to education in our county.
The Tucson Citizen endorses Linda Arzoumanian for re-election as Pima County schools superintendent.
