Political polarization in the United States is playing out in public school governance, policies, and curricula, as well as in political rhetoric around public education. From vaccine and mask mandates to ethnic studies, race and class battle lines abound. Our speakers will talk about the impending San Francisco School Board recall election, the recent Virginia governors’ race and other topics to illustrate how public education is serving as a staging area for system-wide conflict.
Our speakers will be:
Scott McLemee – Intellectual Affairs columnist for Inside Higher Ed.
Jack Gerson – retired Oakland public school teacher and former Oakland Education Association executive board and bargaining team member.
Nathalie Hrizi – bilingual librarian/teacher with SFUSD for 15 years and on the UESF Executive Board for 3 years, currently VP for Substitutes, and Peace and Freedom Party candidate for Insurance Commissioner.
Our meeting host will be:
Marsha Feinland – retired teacher and activist in the Alameda Education Association, and member of the Peace and Freedom Party.
