“I had the pleasure of going through my teaching credential program at San Francisco State University with Alison Collins, who from the very start highlighted issues of equity and access to education as her main areas of focus. Her passion for youth and justice inspired me and we spent many hours planning and discussing ways to improve our instruction. We were even hired at the same school, Galileo High School, and as first-year teachers helped each other keep the vision of equity and justice alive for our students and to meet the many needs of the youth we taught who came from all over San Francisco. I’ve stayed in touch with Alison since that time and her passion for justice is as strong today as it was then. I’m certain she will make a great member of the SF Board of Education and will tirelessly fight for a system that makes our schools equitable and safe for all.” – Joel Arquillos, Executive Director, 826LA
