The Richmond/Senator Milton Marks Branch and the Anza Branch of the San Francisco Public Library serve the Richmond District. In 1930 voters approved a city charter amendment that would increase funding to the library system so a new library could be built. John Reid, Jr., the architect, designed and landscaped the $57,117.29 new library, which was placed on the site of the former Lafayette School. On April 10, 1932 the Anza Library, the 17th municipal library branch, was dedicated. On May 2009 the library system closed the Anza Branch for repairs. A rebuilt library opened on June 18, 2011. Jing Mo Athletic Association lion dancers provided entertainment at the ceremony.

The San Francisco Unified School District does not assign students to public schools base solely on school district boundaries, but instead uses a complex (and often confusing) system where priorities are given to children who live in poor neighborhoods, those with sibling already enrolled in particular schools, and other factors. Parents and students are asked to rank the schools each student want to attend and there is no guarantee that a student will get into a school that he/she most wanted to.

Famous quotes containing the word education:

    To me education is a leading out of what is already there in the pupil’s soul. To Miss Mackay it is a putting in of something that is not there, and that is not what I call education, I call it intrusion.
    Muriel Spark (b. 1918)

    ‘Tis well enough for a servant to be bred at an University. But the education is a little too pedantic for a gentleman.
    William Congreve (1670–1729)

    One of the greatest faults of the women of the present time is a silly fear of things, and one object of the education of girls should be to give them knowledge of what things are really dangerous.
    Ellen Henrietta Swallow Richards (1842–1911)
