The vast majority of black elementary students, 85 percent, are completely unprepared for high school, the data shows. Latino students are only slightly better off at a 76.3 percent failure rate.
Asian students are performing the best in San Francisco at only a 29 percent failure rate while white students are in the middle with a 52.6 percent failure rate. Overall, less than half of all public school elementary students in San Francisco are ready to graduate to high school.
By far, black elementary students are the least likely to show up to class. More than 63 percent of them are "chronically absent," the data shows, while only 8.4 percent of Asian students fall into that category.
Less than one percent of Asian and white elementary students have been suspended compared to 4.5 percent of black students and one percent of Latino students.
Even at the preschool level, less than half of black toddlers, 43.8 percent, are ready for kindergarten – this compared to 38.5 percent of Latino preschoolers, who are even worse off than their black classmates.
At higher grade levels, less than one in four black high school students is ready for college or a career – this compared to 80.3 percent of Asian high school students. White students clock in at being 65.7 percent ready for college and Latinos at 32 percent.
"As a reminder, our elected officials spent most of the pandemic debating school names and whether or not to cover a mural while kids sat at home without proper laptops or wifi," tweeted someone familiar with the situation who is outraged that SFPS is being run in such a manner.
"They then lobbied a campaign to get rid of merit-based admissions at our top academic magnet school ... Three of them were recalled successfully."
Another area of focus for the corrupt SFPS school board has been to get rid of advanced math in 8th grade because math is "racist," according to some board members.
"This is the failure of government," the tweeter added. "Our teacher's union has protected itself at the expense of these children's education."
A former tutor of San Francisco public middle school students, the tweeter further explained that many teachers throughout the district "were often inept," despite the city being one of the wealthiest and most innovative anywhere in the world.
"We cannot blame Republicans for this failure," she says. "There are none in elected local office."
"If San Francisco wants to be a progressive / liberal beacon of hope we must account for what is happening in the schools ... Better yet, we must fix it."
Democrats claim they care about education, but the situation in San Francisco is worse than what exists in some ravaged third-world country. Students there are not being prepared to make a life in this increasingly corrupt world, and corrupt school board members are to blame.
"To all the San Francisco voters who sit at dinner parties and bemoan how 'broken' the system is ... This is the system," the tweeted adds. "It needs to be fixed. It's in our backyard. And we are all turning our heads."
"It is clear to me that career politicians and bureaucrats are using the San Francisco school system as a launching pad for their ascendency into higher office. This is shameful – truly shameful."
