The recent political debate over education arrived in San Francisco as voters in this famously progressive city overwhelmingly recalled three members of the city’s school board. Analysts attribute the recall to unpopular initiatives and for putting politics over the needs of children.
Particularly unpopular were the board’s effort to rename a third of the schools in the system and the change to the admissions process at the prestigious Lowell High School. Furthermore, the recall election demonstrated the voting strength of Asian Americans in the “City by the Bay.”
Use these links to answer the following:
1. Explain how the San Francisco board alienated constituents who are predisposed to agree with them. Which decision by the board ultimately cost three members their jobs?
2. How should race and racism be taught in the absence of frameworks like critical race theory? Should parents be the ultimate arbiters of what content is taught to their children?
3. Describe how the debate over critical race theory has affected the way teachers do their jobs?
