Students at the San Francisco Friends School spent months studying issues like youth homelessness and climate change, then invited other middle school students to participate in a summit to learn more about what they learned. More than 230 students from all over the city joined the summit on May 4.
Climate change? Maybe, maybe not of any importance. Regardless, we’ll all be dead way, way, way before it plays out although it was unseasonably warm today. Everyone is entitled to their facts, right? And homelessness? What was the upshot of the teach-in? just curious. Everyone deserves a roof over their head? If I designed the curriculum it would most certainly start and finish with the lack of leadership on the part of our beloved big-city, Democratic politicians. Talk to a pol or their representative and ask why is homelessness so endemic to the west coast, as Blue a part of the country as there is. I see Oakland is finally clearing out some of the encampments. The irony here is that the changes are coming not because of local citizen outrage, although most assuredly there was plenty of that– but because of national embarrassment brought about by night after night of Fox News reporting. If you don’t watch Fox fine and dandy but trust me they’ve brought the limelight to our great state and it’s only now our local pols are jumping on the bandwagon.
