Mike Magee, CEO of Chiefs for Change, a bipartisan network of state and district education leaders, today issued the following statement.
Bob Runcie is a member of the Chiefs for Change Board of Directors and joined the network in 2016. He has always shown himself to be a person of the highest integrity. Growing up in an immigrant family, schools changed the trajectory of Bob’s own life, and he has devoted everything he has to advancing justice, equality, and opportunity through public education. To my knowledge, every decision Bob has ever made as superintendent has been with students’ best interests at heart. I do not know the specifics of the allegations against him; however, I know he is a man of character with a strong moral compass. Chiefs for Change is grateful for Bob’s leadership and is proud that he is a member of our community.
