Ethnic studies campaign to stir up board meeting 

A swarm of people wearing red will rally in the Board of Education office tomorrow before the commission meeting.

They’re planning to urge commission members to create funds for more ethnic classes in The City’s high school classrooms.

They will be asking for $300,000 to start a pilot program for 250 students in five classrooms to increase their “political, social, and economic awareness and deepen their pride about their personal identities and connections to local and global histories.”

The meeting starts at 6 p.m.  but the Campaign for Ethnic Studies in SFUSD will be rallying at 5 p.m. at 555 Franklin St.
