San Francisco Board of Education Candidates Forum 2016

On October 17, 2016, the Ruth Asawa School of the Arts hosted a forum for candidates for San Francisco’s Board of Education, moderated by San Francisco Chronicle education reporter Jill Tucker.  

Candidates Stevon Cook, Rob Geller, Matt Haney, Ian Kalin, Phil Kim, Trevor McNeil, Rachel Norton, Mark Sanchez, and Jill Wynns participated in the forum.  

The forum was co-sponsored by the Second District PTA, Parents for Public Schools SF, the San Francisco Education Fund, the San Francisco Parent Political Action Committee, and Support for Families for Children with Disabilities.  

Thanks to Dan Gunning for recording the forum for KALW, and to Carol Kocivar for her role in making this recording happen.

Matt Martin was KALW’s general manager from 2006 through 2018. Under his leadership, KALW grew into one of the most productive and innovative stations in public radio. Programs launched at KALW during Matt’s tenure as GM include the award-winning local newsmagazine Crosscurrents, the design podcast 99% Invisible, and the Spanish-language narrative journalism program Radio Ambulante. He helped create the station’s Audio Academy, a year-long program aimed at developing new talents in public radio, and led the first broad-based strategic planning process in the station’s history.
