Welcome back, Juan Baughn

We used our editorial page today to welcome back a very familiar face to the Chester Upland School District.

Juan Baughn was named interim superintendent, taking over for the departing Gregory Shannon.

Baughn will be staring at some familiar problems: the district is still plagued by poor test scores; teachers are still waiting for a new contract and their first raise in five years - they rejected the district's latest offer.

But without question the biggest hurdle he faces is the same one every Chester Upland boss has faced in recent memory. The district continues to swim in a sea of red ink.

We welcome back Juan Baughn. And wish him luck.

He's going to need it.
