San Francisco Now Suing Its Own Schools To Force Them To Open

In a first for California, and perhaps the entire nation, San Francisco is suing its own school district to force schools to open.

Per the San Francisco Chronicle: “City Attorney Dennis Herrera, with the blessing of Mayor London Breed, plans to sue the San Francisco Board of Education and the San Francisco Unified School District for violating a state law compelling districts to adopt a clear plan during the COVID-19 pandemic describing actions they ‘will take to offer classroom-based instruction whenever possible.'”

The state law cited above says school districts must have a plan in place for students who are experiencing “significant learning loss due to school closures.” Per the SF Chronicle, district data revealed that the loss of in-person instruction has hit minority and low-income students especially hard. It’s been nearly a year since public school students in San Francisco have been inside a classroom.

“San Francisco is among a handful of large cities — including New York, Chicago and Washington D.C. — where mayors and districts have been fighting with teachers unions over reopening,” the SF Chronicle reported.

Herrera will file a motion Feb. 11 requesting that the San Francisco Superior Court will issue an emergency order, pushing the school district to come up a reopening plan.

  1. we are just seeing the first of many years of liberal educated children hitting job markets. Why don’t I make 6 figures right now, why do I have to work late, I need more vacation, my boss gave me a bad review, I want him fired for harassment.

  2. “Significant learning loss” and it’s hitting minority and lower income families the hardest. How about that — you mean the leadership of San Francisco is saying the very same thing the Trump Administration was saying several months ago.

  3. Well, you get what you vote for. Meanwhile in Los Angeles officials there said some time ago said that schools could safely re-open once all students were vaccinated. Let’s see, that should only take about three years. It seems that the teachers’ unions have chosen to follow only certain elements of their contract. It’s time to start paying them accordingly.

    We keep hearing that we need to “follow the science”. Then let’s try that. Remember everyone, it’s all about the children.
