Speak-out at SF School Board Meeting 12/11/2012

The San Francisco Unified School District bosses and managers have been waging a war of intimidation and bullying against the students, teachers and staff at the Martin Luther King Middle School which mostly serves students from Hunters Point and Bay View in San Francisco.
The principal Natalie Everhard sat on a female student and injured a UESF security staff member. Here along with the Vice Principal Anthony Braxton have retaliated, transferred UESF and SEIU 1021 workers and are seeking to fire the staff who have spoken out. These staff have a long history of bulling and harassment of staff and students.

At the same time, the Assistant Superintendent Jeannie Pon who is in charge of the SF Middle Schools has covered up this criminal activity and has even sent letters to the parents that all is well at the school. Physical abuse of students is a criminal offense and those who cover it up are guilty of felonies.
There is also no security in the school despite the administration’s action to bring NAACP director Amos Brown into the school to supposedly calm the school.
Principal Everhard eliminated the counselors at the school and she previously gave away the band equipment and closed the music and art program. This at a school named for Dr. Martin Luther King!
The pro-privatization SF SFUSD superintendent Richard Carranza also has stated that a full investigation has been made of these incidents and that the charges against Everhard are “slander”.

This despite the fact that the district has not interviewed the very staff who were witness to the incidents.
Pon, Everhard and Superintendent Richard Carranza are all supporters of the pro-privatization Bechtel funded SERP and STEM program which pushes testing and the core standards which exclude music and the arts. Pon is even on the San Francisco “Core Members Group” which pushes this agenda.

While George Shultz who is on the Board of Bechtel and his pals are making billions for war in Iraq and more nuclear power plants they are destroying public education in San Francisco for poor Black and Latino students.
