    Is it racism or incompetence that is keeping our schools closed?  When you look at the statistics those harmed the most are minorities and special needs students.  Why have the unions decided to ignore the data, take their salaries anyway and not educate our children?

    “Attendance held steady overall across the district at 95 percent between fall 2019 and fall 2020, but dropped from 89 percent to 85 percent among Black students, 90 percent to 87 percent among Pacific Islander students, and 91 percent to 88 percent among homeless students. The same groups each saw a 1-2 percent attendance decline from fall 2018 to fall 2019, even before the COVID-19 pandemic began.

    SFUSD identified 910 students as needing “re-engagement” due to having less than 40 percent attendance, as required under state law around distance learning. Half of those disengaged students last semester were Latino, a quarter were Black, 32 percent were English learners, and 30 percent needed special education. High school students accounted for 63 percent.”

    If a Republican caused this they would be tarred and feathered as racist Klan members.  Since it is unions doing it, no one cares.
