SFUSD High School Culture-Climate Survey Data Analysis


Feb 8th, 2021

 

Several Lowell parents independently reviewed publicly available data from SFUSD's annual Culture/Climate survey for each high school. On their own, the parents located the latest year’s data for each school, consolidated it manually into a Google spreadsheet, and began to analyze it. They then approached us to help package and present their analysis. Families for San Francisco is proud to present their analysis to the public, in the hope that it will foster greater understanding of demographic data and student experience across SFUSD high schools

 

 

 

Another parent volunteer created an interactive diagram with the same data. Check it out.

Our Position on Commisioner Matt Alexander

Feb 15th, 2021

 

Families for San Francisco is deeply disappointed by Commissioner Matt Alexander's performance on the Board of Education thus far. We endorsed his candidacy as we thought he would be an independent voice of reason on the Board. However, he has become a loyal foot soldier for the Board's ideological agenda. We are further dismayed by his refusal to entertain factual information presented during the School Renaming and Lowell Admissions debates. We regret our endorsement and will continue to hold him accountable moving forward.
