This Ain’t It, Chief: San Fran Schools Ban Commonplace Word From Job Titles

This article explains why San Fran has the fewest young people in schools, percentage wise, in the nation.  Also, explains why parents have removed their students from SF government schools.  Instead of education, they get Soviet style indoctrination.

“The district has not yet determined a replacement for the word, which also appears in the job titles “fire chief,” “chief of staff,” and “editor in chief.” Blythe was quick to note, however, that dropping “chief” does not reflect “a downgrade in job status.”

The district did not tell the Chronicle whether it advocates for President Joe Biden to be called something other than “commander in chief” or “chief of state.”

You can’t take anything done I San Fran by any government agency—they are all comedians or mentally ill.

This Ain’t It, Chief: San Francisco Schools Ban Commonplace Word From Job Titles

Washington Free Beacon, 5/27/22 

The San Francisco Unified School District will drop the word “chief” from all job titles because of “the word’s connotation with Native Americans,” the San Francisco Chronicle reported Thursday.

District spokeswoman Gentle Blythe told the Chronicle that “Native American members of our community have expressed concerns” over “chief,” prompting the district to change all job titles that include the commonly used word. The district has 10,000 employees, the Chronicle noted.

While the word “chief” can be used in connection with American Indian tribes, it also appears in many phrases that have no such connection, including “chief of police,” “chief executive officer,” and “sorry about that, chief.” The word has no connection to Native American languages, according to Merriam-Webster dictionary, instead deriving originally from the Latin caput, meaning “head.”

The district has not yet determined a replacement for the word, which also appears in the job titles “fire chief,” “chief of staff,” and “editor in chief.” Blythe was quick to note, however, that dropping “chief” does not reflect “a downgrade in job status.”

The district did not tell the Chronicle whether it advocates for President Joe Biden to be called something other than “commander in chief” or “chief of state.”

    I believe the leaders of Scots clans were also known as chieftains or chiefs.

    This goes to the heart of why no one in CA wants their children in public school – not only are they obsessed with race, they are completely ignorant of anything that happened in another country.

    Let’s hear it for McDonald of the Isles, allegedly my great-grandmother’s clan.

      As a person of Scotish heritage, and the oldest male, I’ll take the title and love it.

      So the school board can take and place it where the sun does not shine….that from a Clan Chief.

    The San Francisco Board of Education is not only ignorant, they are stupid. Leftists are just plain defective.

  3. Need to send a public records request to the SFUSD demanding all written records they have from Native Americans complaining about the use of the word “Chief” in job titles and requesting that the word be banned. I bet there may be one or two….

    I can think of only one word to describe these progressives, inept. They ruin everything they come in contact with and should immediately be deported to a communist country of their choice. They certainly have no love for this great country. All they have accomplished is the destruction, the debasement and caustic ruining of what once was a strong and wonderful country. Not to mention the destruction of the family, values, morals, ethics and exceptionalism.

  5. The word “chief” comes from Old French dating back to the 1300’s, well before it was adopted for American Indian leaders around 1700, according to the Washington Post. Everyday a new insanity.
