A frequent visitor to The K Files pointed out a huge flaw in the way I worded the question for my poll. I appreciate her careful reading.
My question says, "Should San Francisco change the lottery enrollment process so children can to to neighborhood schools?" Yes, children CAN go to their neighborhood schools—it's just that they're not guaranteed their neighborhood schools. I will reintroduce the poll with new wording—though you all have to vote again because I can't make the change without losing the votes.
And please, I welcome anyone to point out mistakes on this blog. I'm doing a lot of the writing late at night after going to work all day and caring for my children in the evening. By the time I get to writing, my mind is tired. Plus, I'm definitely not an expert on the school situation in San Francisco. I'm just trying to create a space where we can all learn from each other and I'm hoping to introduce topics that will get people thinking. Thanks everyone for reading this blog!
