Teachers and supporters of public education opposed the destruction of the San Francisco Malcom X Academy in Hunters Point Bayview by putting a union busting racist KIPP Charter School into the same school under co-location. They also spoke up against the anti-labor PAR program which is being used to target senior teachers, African American teachers and Latino teachers in the district.

SFSUD Protest Against Union Busting SF Kipp Charter, Privatization & The PAR Program

Teachers and students of Malcom X Academy protested the co-location of a KIPP SF charter at the public school and the growing siphoning off of public funds to privately run charters. Teachers also protested the discriminatory Peer Assisted Review PAR program which has been embedded into the UESF union contract which bullies teachers and is being used against senior teachers, African American and Latino teachers. The SFUSD superintendent and HR management is using this corrupt program to retaliate against teachers and workplace bullies are in charge of the program. Over $1 million a year is spent on this program from the Prop A School regressive parcel tax to pay for this disciplinary program and it the UESF leadership has allowed the program to be embedded in the contract through a vote on the tax. The parcel tax legislation also allowed the Superintendent to place a teacher in the program even if the union disagrees. Board member Mark Sanchez has said that he was told that they have to support this program to discipline teachers which means sidelining the union grievance procedure.
This meeting took place at the San Francisco Unified School District SFUSD on June 12, 2018.

The SFUSD management are using the PAR Peer Assisted Review program to bully and terrorize senior teachers, African-American teachers and Latino teachers. Over $1 million in tax money is being used for this reactionary program.
Margaret Reyes has refused to participate in the discriminatory program and has been suspended twice without a proper hearing by the SFUSD superintendent Vincent Matthews and his staff. Under the parcel tax A the management and union leadership put in a stealth clause that allowed the Superintendent to place teachers in the program even if the union disagreed.
