This is critical work.
Right now, less than half of SF public school kids are proficient at math* ... and only 9% of Black students are. NINE percent. It's a crisis.
The old school board was unable to fix this crisis. Instead, they wasted time trying to rename schools and paint over murals. (These decisions cost us half a million dollars in legal fees.) No wonder EVERY neighborhood in the city voted to recall them.
In just a few months, Ann, Lainie, & Lisa have
• 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 student outcomes (the previous board spent <5% of its time on this)There is much work ahead to fix our schools
, and it's critical to vote for ALL THREE
. They are the only candidates in the race committed to focusing on student outcomes FIRST -- and that's what will change the trajectory of our kids' lives.
The other three candidates stood with the old school board. If even one of them makes it into office, they will have a majority -- and we'll be right back to the broken policies of the past.
Please help. Your vote will make a difference.
