Report Card

Report Card explores how the pandemic has exacerbated and brought attention to issues of inequity in public education, as schools across the nation turn to distance-learning methods that leave large swaths of students at a clear disadvantage. Focusing on public schools in and around San Francisco’s Mission District, which has the highest number of confirmed COVID-19 cases in the city and in California, where the Latinx population has been disproportionately affected, the project applies an innovative, multi-platform approach to highlight the unseen hurdles that students in underserved communities face throughout the school year. The work appears in Mission Local, an independent, bilingual news site.
