Rally to demand Board of Education to focus on the right priorities
Friday, 10/23/2020, 3:15pm-4pm
555 Franklin, 94102
Parents and their children will be holding a rally in front of the SFUSD office (555 Franklin) on Friday (10/23) from 3.15 pm to 4 pm to demand the Board of Education to focus on reopening schools and to work towards delivering excellent and equitable education.
In the past few months, the school district and the board have not focused on the right priorities. The Lowell admissions debacle is not the only example. Just last week, Mayor Breed rebuked the board for prioritizing renaming schools instead of reopening them.
During the only scheduled meeting for public discussion for Lowell admission, Board member Alison Colins, was heard on a hot mike, saying, "I'm listening to a bunch of racists." Families demanding a fair and transparent process should not be called racists. As the community faces more and more discrimination during the COVID-19 pandemic, that comment was especially jarring.
Parents and their children will protest every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at 3.15 pm to demand the board to focus on what San Francisco families really need.

抗议三藩市教育局，无视家长 罔顾民意 10/23/20/五下午 3:30pm，555 Franklin St
10/23/2020星期五下午 3:30p-4p，家长们将带孩子一起去教育局门前（555 Franklin）抗议教育委员、教育局、学生代表和校区，抗议这些官方无视上万学生和家长，罔顾我们的首要需求和努力，缺乏尊重，缺乏民主。
教育委员会和教育局的强硬手腕，无论在新冠期间不开校反而去改校名，对Lowell 临时收生改制草草行事，缺乏透明，并辱骂家长“racists”。这件事上，教育委员会、教育局、学生代表，把 165 年历史的三藩市之骄Lowell，以一天的通知、一周多的听证，就废掉武功。太不尊重 8600 人的网上请愿，和3000 人参与的网上民意调查结果。会议上还有人说，发言反对的都是白人和东亚人，都是racists。也有教育委员指我们家长是racists，并公然说不恭敬的话。
我们必须愤然反抗！本周五开始，逢星期一、三、五下午3:15pm-4pm，我们带孩子一起到555 Franklin门口 抗议，一直抗议到天荒地老，一直到我们得回应得的尊重为止，绝对不能被几个人几天就把世世代代的努力抹杀，让我们再次进入 被排华的黑暗时代。
