The State Board of Education is interviewing the final three candidates tomorrow to become the next state school Superintendent. Current Superintendent Mike Flanagan will retire from the post at the end of June. Among the candidates being considered for the position is Brian Whiston. He’s the current Superintendent of Dearborn Public Schools. He has been with the district for seven years—and before that—worked with the Oakland Schools for 11 years. He tells WDET’s J. Carlisle Larsen why he wants the job.
