The San Francisco Unified School District is having a difficult year. They are contending with  falling enrollment,  a school naming controversy, a retiring Superintendent and bringing kids back to  school in mid-April. There is also an existing recall effort against Board Vice President Alison Collins, given new momentum after recent revelations of tweets condemned as Anti-Asian that Collins made in 2016.
