Why we need them
Less than half of SF public school kids are proficient at math* ... and only 9% of Black students are.  

NINE percent.  That's not a typo.  That's a crisis.

The old school board ignored this crisis and wasted time renaming schools instead of reopening them. No wonder EVERY neighborhood in the city voted to recall them -- including yours.

Now their replacements Ann, Lainie, & Lisa are bringing the focus back to education:
• Launched an initiative to make all high schools amazing, including a merit-based Lowell
• Hired a superintendent focused on delivering results
• Resolved to spend half of the school board's time on education

Yet there is much work ahead to fix our schools, and it's critical to vote for ALL THREE.

Because....

Recalled Member Gabriela López is running again
Recalled school board president Gabriela López
Recalled school board President Gabriela López, along with her allies, is running to retake her seat.

If she wins, our board will lose its 1-vote majority focused on education
, and we'll be right back to the failed policies of the past.

Don't let López or her allies win
and reverse our children's hard won progress.
