Anger At SF School Board Explodes Over Discrimination And Abuse and Bullying In SF MLK Middle School
At the San Francisco Unified School Board meeting on January 29, staff, parents and advocates of public education protested against the continued bullying at the Martin Luther King Middle School and discrimination against the Black community at Hunters Point/Bay View.
The principal of the MLK school Natalie Eberhard, the vice principal Anthony Braxton the Associate Superintendent Jeannie Pon and the Superintendent have been involved either in physical abuse or covering up physical abuse of a student and also the bullying of 17 UESF and SEIU 1021 staff at the school. Whistleblower and UESF member Tobias Caine who was a security guard at the school reported the physical altercation of the principal and cover-up by Assistant Principal Braxton. He was retaliated against and the District tried to fire him. A Skelly hearing was held and the arbitrator ruled there was no basis for his removal.
