San Antonio Democratic Socialists of America
School Board run
In 2012 Gregg Robinson was running as a candidate for the County Board of Education.
- He has dedicated his life to addressing, and working toward redressing, the growing inaccessibility of educational opportunities due to poverty. This is reflected in his scholarly research and publications, his career as a teacher as well as his ongoing involvement in community organizations.
Robinson’s Ph.D. is from UCSD: he has spent the last 22 years as a sociology professor at Grossmont College. Before that, he worked at UT San Antonio; Austin State; University of Maryland at Eastern Shore, and as a substitute teacher for the SD Unified school district. So while he speaks from experience, eloquently and directly, about issues concerning income gap and educational access and success, he also easily cites major studies from schools like Stanford or UCLA to substantiate his positions.
Gregg’s involvement with community organizations is longstanding. He’s served as head of the Affordable Housing Coalition, and is its current vice chair. Gregg was especially active during the condo conversion craze in San Diego, when it looked like renters would end up being shut out of the market.
