SF votes to recall three school board members -- SF Mayor London Breed will choose their replacements
On this edition of Your Call, we'll give an update on the San Francisco school board recall. San Francisco voters have recalled three members of the San Francisco school board – Board President Gabriela López and Commissioners Alison Collins and Faauuga Moliga. Mayor London Breed will choose their replacements.
Supporters pointed to the handling of school openings during the pandemic, financial mismanagement, the decision to eliminate selective admission at Lowell High School, and the attempt to rename 44 high schools during the pandemic as evidence of their failure.
While the recall had grassroots support, it was also funded by wealthy donors who do not have children in San Francisco's public schools.
