What's at stake?

Issues in the district

Superintendent clashes with teachers' union

In April 2014, Superintendent Cindy Marten issued an initial contract proposal to the San Diego Education Association (SDEA), which is the local branch of the California Teacher's Association (CTA). Marten's proposal included changes in compensation policy, the inclusion of student and parent feedback in teacher evaluations and relaxed rules regarding class size. According to the SDEA, this proposal represented "broad take-backs across the board." An opinion piece by the San Diego Union Telegraph's editorial board praised Marten's proposal and denounced the SDEA's criticism of it as indicative that they are "more focused on adult employment than student achievement." Since 2009, candidates endorsed by the SDEA have constituted the majority of the school board.[4]

Note: The United States Census Bureau considers "Hispanic or Latino" to be a place of origin, not a race. Therefore, the Census allows citizens to report both their race and that they are from a "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin simultaneously. As a result, the percentages in each column of the racial demographics table will exceed 100 percent. Each column will add up to 100 percent after removing the "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin percentages, although rounding by the Census Bureau may make the total one or two tenths off from being exactly 100 percent.[8]
