Stop Retaliation, Bullying And Racism at SFUSD: UESF Members Speak Out At SF School Board Meeting
Teachers and staff who have spoken out about

Carranza. Speakers included Tobias Caine, a security guard and
member of the UESF and Linda Cooks a teacher and member of
UESF. They spoke at the San Francisco Board of Education meeting
on November 13, 2012 about the retaliation and racism at the San Francisco Middle School
Over 14 workers who are members of UESF and SEIU 1021 workers
have been bullied, injured and retaliated against by Martin Luther King principal Natalie
Eberhard. This terrorism and physical abuse by Everhard has been
covered up by the school board and the school superintendent Richard
Carranza as well as Assistant Superintendent Jeannie Pon who is in charge of the
SFUSD Middle Schools. The management also refuse to release a video
tape of the principal sitting on a Black student at the school.
Assistant superintendent Jeannie Pondwho is on the board of the
SERP Core group which is funded and controlled by the Bechtel
corporation has also personally been involved in covering up this criminal
activity by Everhard and been involved in obstruction of justice by refusing
to report this physical abuse to the police and the SF District Attorney Gascon
as is required by the law.
Everhard in one of her first acts as principal of the mostly Black and Latino
school gave away the band instruments and has eliminated the music and art programs
and classes at the Martin Luther King school in San Francisco.
Also the United Educators of San Francisco UESF along with community
groups and parents had a press conference which details the specific
situation at the school. You can watch this at:
