Alison Collins talks about parents rights to protect their schools from charters in the SF Examiner:
“Collins, a public school advocate who is also a candidate in the school board race, said that low-income and “black and brown” communities are more often targeted for charter school expansion than other communities.
“They are pushing into schools that serve very marginalized communities and into spaces that are giving them those extra services they need, like wellness center, cool down rooms, resource rooms, family rooms,” said Collins. “Other schools don’t have space, [and] the only sites available are spaces in black neighborhoods where schools tend to be under-enrolled because they are under-resourced.”
