The last time you likely heard about San Francisco’s school district was when they decided to rename dozens of schools over concerns their namesakes, including Abraham Lincoln, were not woke enough. Mayor London Breed said at the time that she couldn’t understand why the district was spending time and energy on renaming schools when it had no plan to reopen them.

Today the San Francisco Chronicle reports the city is taking things up a notch. The City Attorney is expected to announce today that he will sue the city’s own school district over its lack of a clear reopening plan.

San Francisco School Board Pauses Effort To Rename 44 Schools, Says Its ‘Only Focus’ Will Shift To Reopening Classrooms

The San Francisco Board of Education is pausing its “anti-racist” effort to rename 44 schools and will instead prioritize reopening classrooms, the board’s president announced Sunday.

Gabriela López, the board’s president, wrote in the San Francisco Chronicle that renaming committee meetings will be canceled and reopening schools will become the board’s “only focus until our children and young people are back in schools.”

López referred to the school renaming effort as one of “many distracting public debates” that have taken place as San Francisco’s schools have remained closed for nearly a year. The city sued its own school district over a worsening mental health crisis among students whose education has been virtual since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic.

It's pathetic that it took a lawsuit to get the school board to do what it is supposed to do!
