California: San Francisco School Board facing recall threats over school renaming; reopen questions

San Francisco School Board is facing recall threats over several issues, including a push to plan for the reopening of the schools, changing admissions for a high school and an extremely controversial decision to change the names of public schools for political reasons and using some odd history, including removing the name of Abraham Lincoln. Mayor London Breed has been particularly critical of the board, and the City Attorney Dennis Herrera has sued to compel reopening. 

The members are President Gabriela Lopez, Vice President Alison Collins and members Jenny Lam, Mark Sanchez and Kevine Boggess, Faauuga Moliga and Matt Alexander, some of whom will not be able to face a recall until June. San Francisco follows state law, which would require 10% of registered voters in the city. so that should be about 51,413 valid signatures for each board member.
