SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – Students in the San Diego Unified School District meeting or exceeding state standards in English, art and math dropped 4% and 7.4%, respectively, from 2019. district officials announced earlier this month.

The numbers are taken from the California Smarter Balanced Assessments, which reflect student performance during the pandemic.

SDUSD Board of Education President Sharon Whitehurst-Payne said the pandemic has exacerbated existing trends in student achievement and “reinforced the need to focus on the whole child.” “The pandemic has affected us all. However, some students and families have been affected more than others,” she said. “We cannot forget that many of our students are still grieving the family members, caregivers and loved ones they lost to COVID-19.

The San Diego Unified School District has been one of the nation’s toughest in terms of COVID-19 rules, but officials say the rules they supported had nothing to do with lower test scores.

SDUSD Board Trustee Richard Barrera explained that this was the first year students have been tested since 2019, and the transition back to face-to-face learning has been “difficult” for students, which is why the scores are down.

Barrera assumes no responsibility for supporting and enforcing policies that lead to a “hard transition” back to in-person learning.

These failed policies and the failure to hold SDUSD officials accountable led Becca Williams to decide to run for the District C seat on the San Diego Unified School Board. Williams is campaigning against Cody Peterson, who is running as a “union candidate.”

On KUSI’s Good Evening San Diego, Williams told KUSI’s Logan Byrnes that distance learning can work for classes like reading, but it’s clearly an ineffective way to teach subjects like math.

Williams went on to explain that she opposes new teaching theories where the “answer” doesn’t necessarily matter in the subjects, but the process takes precedence.

For example, in math there is only one answer to problems.

Her opponent, Cody Peterson, received $300,000 from the teachers unions, and Williams says she will continue to promote their ideology if she wins this election.
