Didn’t make it to our conversation with incoming San Diego Unified School District Superintendent Cindy Marten? In the latest edition of VOSD Radio, Scott Lewis and Will Carless analyze the chat with Marten (watch selections here or read a recap) and discuss questions Marten will face as her tenure gets under way.

Also in education news, Carless has updates on:

the labor battle between Ramona Unified School District and its teachers union; and

• San Diego Unified CFO Stan “Data” Dobbs’ statements about “excess employees” in the district.


• the Number of the Week: $8 million. That’s what the city of Chula Vista must pay to cell phone users who said they were illegally taxed.

• a Fact Check on whether police protest every alcohol license application in the city (the verdict: “Mostly True”).

• some big changes at VOSD: Carless is leaving his job here to move his family to Uruguay (which means we’re hiring).
