Elite Lowell School Back in the News

This is Part II of a series reporting on San Francisco’s prestigious Lowell High School as it returns to merit-based admissions. In June of this year I reported on the decision of the San Francisco United School District Board which narrowly voted to restore merit based admissions to the elite Lowell High School. The Globe reported extensively on the tumultuous time for the school and the district as lawsuits were threatened and vile accusations of racism were hurled from the various ethnic and racial communities that comprise the district.

From aspirations to reality: How has Canyon been impacted by free lunches at school?

When thinking about school lunch one of the most common things you picture is the nostalgic hard pizza or bruised apples you grew up eating. The images of running to the lunch line and having to enter in your six-digit number flash through.

Pandemic ripple effects still apparent in Bayview schools

While the immediate danger of Covid-19 seems to be receding into the background of most of our daily lives, we will likely continue to feel the ripple effects from the pandemic for years to come. This reality is obvious to anyone involved in K-12 education. Just in the past year, San Francisco Unified School District (SFUSD) has had to deal with seriously understaffed schools, ridiculous payroll issues, and a complicated transition back to in-person learning. For the educators who have fought to support their school communities throughout this period, the long-term ramifications of the pandemic are glaring.

How to survive transfer student shock

Transitioning to college can be difficult and overwhelming for anyone, but transfer students often face an additional shock of academic and social disorientation. Adjusting to a new campus culture and different academic expectations can feel isolating and result in impostor syndrome. After two years of community college and giving my all into my academics, I came to UC Berkeley still feeling disoriented, both socially and academically.
