In a first for the 2018 election season, students took the reins to organize a forum for school board candidates. They asked the questions and ran the show.
Fall 2018 Election
The November 2018 election once again put big issues before San Francisco voters, among them a business tax to expand funding for homelessness services and housing; stronger data privacy, and new supervisors and school commissioners. And once again, city voters backed progressive candidates for City Hall and schools, and higher taxes for social services. They also approved a blueprint for the ambitious goal of crafting the nation’s toughest policy on the collection and use of residents’ personal information.
