If you don’t vote, you can’t complain about our schools
Who we elect to the school board is crucial to the kind of public schools we have. But few parents seem to pay a great deal of attention to exactly what school board candidates believe in.
Because of my day ob, I’m constrained from making any recommendations.
Other places you can go for information:
A nice, non-partisan chart of the candidates from a local school’s PTA
SF Chron: (middle of the road)
SF Parent Watch
(A Yahoo group of public school parents focused on what they feel is SFUSD’s issues with “the false choice between equity and excellence” and pushing for access to more advanced math. The list includes (and I mean lots) of discussion of school board candidates)
SF Parent PAC (I think pretty middle of the road, but could be wrong)
SF Bay Guardian, extremely progressive
Stan Goldberg, aka Senior Dad – mostly just the facts
An SFUSD parent with a podcast about school issues who usually interviews all the candidates. I don’t think he’s started posting his interview yet but they should come soon
