SAN FRANCISCO MIDDLE SCHOOL STUDENT ELECTION RESULTS WITHHELD BY PRINCIPAL BECAUSE THEY WEREN’T DIVERSE ENOUGH:

The incident happened at Everett Middle School in San Francisco’s Mission District. The voting was held Oct. 10, but the principal sent an email to parents on Oct. 14 saying the results would not be released because the candidates that were elected as a whole do not represents the diversity that exists at the school.

According to Principal Lena Van Haren, Everett Middle School has a diverse student body. She said 80 percent of students are students of color and 20 percent are white, but the election results did not represent the entire study body.

“That is concerning to me because as principal I want to make sure all voices are heard from all backgrounds,” Van Haren said.

As a celebrated Progressive once confessed, “It is enough that the people know there was an election. The people who cast the votes decide nothing. The people who count the votes decide everything.”
