San Francisco Voters Recall 3 Members of City's School Board

Summary from the AllSides News Team

On Tuesday, voters in San Francisco recalled three members of the city's seven-member school board following parental criticism of COVID-19 rules and progressive policy changes.

More than 70% of voters supported recalling School Board President Gabriela Lopez, Commissioner Alison M. Collins and Commissioner Faauuga Moliga. Lopez pledged to run again in November. San Francisco Mayor London Breed, who endorsed the recall, will now select three new commissioners to fill the vacancies. Reports across the spectrum highlighted how at-home learning put a strain on parents during the pandemic as many schools remain closed, and how some parents were concerned about the board's focus on racial and social justice issues.

Some coverage on all sides, especially from right-rated outlets, framed the recall as the result of voters rejecting progressive priorities leading up to the 2022 midterm elections.
