Furlough

Tomorrow there is no school in SFUSD.

As a reminder, while teachers are not working tomorrow, they will not be paid, either.  This is the first of four furlough days this year.

Similarly, while the school year is four days shorter, students will still be expected to master the same content.

Should they fail to do so, or at least do so in a way that can be documented on Scantron, this is clearly the fault of their teachers and has nothing to do with the shortened year, reduced school budgets or anything else so clearly peripheral to education.  Or at least it undoubtedly will be to any number of bright, young venture capitalists moving into the exciting world of for-profit charter schools, performance metrics, and general anti-union fervor.
