An update on the SFUSD Enrollment conversation Last night I participated in a great discussion last night at the Ad Hoc Student Assignment Committee, Board
It has become painfully clear to me, that the conversations all of us have been having around diversity are in some way a part of the problem. I mean, if diversity programs that were spearheaded 20 years ago were so successful, why is our country still struggling around topics of race?
I am sick and tired of parents who have NO experience with public schools, stereotyping our hard-working, caring and knowledgeable teachers, our active and engaged parents, and our bright and creative students… STOP TRASHING OUR SCHOOLS!
Reports like those on the a new GradeEdge website often make very good schools look “low-performing” simply because they serve low income students. This is not only unfair, it’s irresponsible because it often leads anxious parents to have incorrect negative assumptions about some very good schools.
