Dr. Espanola Jackson, a San Francisco Bayview Hunters Point community leader and educator was prevented from speaking for two minutes by the SFUSD chair Rachel Norton and the school board because of her planned exposure of the racism and criminal cover-up by the principal of MLK Middle School Natalie Eberhard and other management staff of the school district. Despite this she spoke after they recessed the meeting.

SFUSD School Bd Exclusion Of Dr. Espanola Jackson From Speaking and Cover Up Racist Criminal Actions At MLK
The new school board chair Rachel Norton stopped 80 year old Dr. Espanola Jackson from speaking at the February 12, 2013 school board meeting. when she was going to school in San Francisco and her battle to defend Black students at SFUSD. She spoke after the meeting was recessed to stop her from speaking and discussed the racist treatment of Black students including her being placed in a special education class The board and Superintendent Richard Carranza have also covered up criminal abuse at the SF Martin Luther King Middle School by the Principal Natalie Eberhard, Assistant Principal Anthony Braxton and Associate Superintendent Jeannie Pon. There is now a criminal investigation by the DA in San Francisco but the District Attorney like the school board is refusing to interview the actual staff involved in the incident to get their full report. Also the Assistant Principal Anthony Braxton has been transferred out of the school by District management to develop the "core standards". At the previous meeting, it was reported that Braxton was posting material on a web site about his trips to Thailand to procure young men for sexual relationships. The transfer of Braxton without any investigation of him for his criminal cover-up of the abuse and efforts to coerce SFUSD employees to change their stories about the physical abuse by MLK principal Natalie Eberhard now shows that the District management including Superintendent Carranza and the Board Members who know about this situation are themselves involved in covering up these crimes against children and SFSU UESF and SEIU 1021 workers at the schools.
