SF schools blasted for focusing on name changes over learning

SF schools blasted for focusing on name changes over learning

Not everyone is on board with an effort to change the names of some public schools in San Francisco.

“I am livid,” Mayor London Breed fumed after local officials announced 44 schools have signed up for renaming, to distance themselves from discredited historical figures and links to slavery.

“The fact that our kids aren’t in school is what’s driving inequity in our city, not the name of a school,” she said, calling the movement “offensive.”

The San Francisco United School District jumpstarted the initiative and has given area schools until December 18 to come with alternative names. Some of those that have signed up for renaming include those named for George Washington and Abraham Lincoln, according to an ABC News report.

The initiative has angered local leaders and parents who say that students are struggling with far greater issues, such as distance learning during the pandemic.
