Linwood Tauheed: Meet the school board candidates

As the April 6 Kansas City, Missouri, School Board election approaches, we’re profiling all of the candidates.

Linwood Tauheed isn’t a mechanic. But in his bid for the Kansas City, Missouri, School Board, the economics professor offers a car analogy.

“Your car is broken and you need someone to fix it,” he says, drawing a comparison to the district’s struggling schools. “You have two choices: one person who’s never seen the car working and someone who’s seen the car working. Who do you ask?”

Option two, of course.

“Well, I’ve seen cars working,” Tauheed adds. “I’ve been there during that process. I know what works.”

If he’s elected from Subdistrict Four, he aims to bring that know-how to the school board.
