San Francisco Parents Rise Up and Oust Three School Board Members in Recall Election

In a recall election, parents in San Francisco rose up and outside three school board members.

The parents were outraged over progressive policies that were pushed by the school board, including changing school names and the long duration of school closings during the pandemic.

The school board wanted, for example, to rename Abraham Lincoln High School.

Also crucial to the vote were Asian voters who were upset about the effort to end admissions based on merit at a prestigious high school.

The New York Times reports:

In echoes of debates in other cities, many Chinese voters were incensed when the school board introduced a lottery admission system for Lowell High School, the district’s most prestigious institution, abolishing requirements primarily based on grades and test scores.

KTVU Fox reported on the recall election.

The fact that three progressive school board members were recalled in liberal San Francisco is big news, especially with conservatives.

Parents outraged over school board decisions is now a national issue and it shows it’s cutting across traditional political lines.

The San Francisco Chronicle referred to the voters as “closet Republicans.”

Last November, blue state Virginia parents concerned about school board decisions helped elect a Republican Governor, Lieutenant Governor, and Attorney General.

Ousting three members of a school board in liberal San Francisco is another sign of a red wave election in November.
