“The long-standing academic and fiscal crisis within the Rochester City School District has continuously grown worse (year after year),” stated Eagle. “I believe Rochester parents, and citizens in general, are seeking new, fresh ideas, and bold, committed, knowledgeable leadership that will finally, effectively address the old, and deepening crisis. I stand ready, willing, and able to help provide such leadership.”
Eagle taught social studies in the RCSD for 23 years, before retiring in 2010, and is now an adjunct professor in the Department of African American Studies at SUNY Brockport.
He has participated in school board elections in the past, and most recently ran for a seat in the 2013 election.
