Woke SF Kindergarten Earns Low Grades In California

A struggling kindergarten in San Francisco has some of the lowest test scores in the state, according to a recent report, after hiring an organization named Woke Kindergarten to teach anti-government, anti-capitalism, anti-Israel and “disrupting whiteness” lessons.

Glassbrook Elementary School, a San Francisco-area elementary school in Hayward, one of the lowest performing schools in the nation, recently paid out $250,000 to Woke Kindergarten in what the school says was a bid to increase the students’ test scores.

The money came from federal funds appropriated to help some of the nation’s schools lagging behind their peers in education.

Woke Kindergarten describes itself as a “global, abolitionist early childhood ecosystem and visionary creative portal supporting children, families, educators, and organizations in their commitment to abolitionist early education and pro-black and queer and trans liberation.” The organization states that it relies primarily on donations.

“Woke Kindergarten is community-sustained, and relies primarily on donations for the use of our resources. We believe that children, families and educators should be able to access and use our content at no cost and welcome donations as a way to support us,” the organization’s website says, but Glassbrook recently paid the company $250,000.

According to a recent report by Fox News, the elementary school is still struggling with low test scores after two years of hiring the outside group to focus the young students’ attention on controversial political topics from one side’s point of view.

Fewer than 12% of the students can read at their grade level, and less than 4% can do math at their grade level. Both figures are down 4% from two years ago when the political lessons began.

School district superintendent Jason Reimann recently told the San Francisco Chronicle that the school hired “Woke Kindergarten” to boost attendance, not test scores. He reported that attendance has risen almost 20% after the initiative.

“I just want to express my disappointment that Hayward has spent $200,000 to bring abolitionist training to our school,” Tiger Craven-Neeley, a third-grade Glassbrook teacher said at a school board meeting last week. “Not that some of the content isn’t worthy; it is. But just $200,000, I just can’t help but think where else that money could have been spent.”
