The Syracuse Post-Standard has endorsed two Green Party candidates for Syracuse City School District school board. The newspaper says Raymond Blackwell “overcame the siren song of a gang to graduate from Fowler High School” and went on to get a master’s degree, and “promises a practical approach, pushing the district to create more vocational and technical training to move students swiftly from schools to well-paying jobs in the community.”
Nineteen-year-old Caleb Duncan, “a 2014 Henninger High School graduate, founded a student union in high school and served as a student representative on the code of conduct task force that resulted in the current discipline code. His thoughtful responses to the editorial board’s questions show that he’s ready to take his place at the table.”
The newspaper also endorsed two non-Green candidates.
