Candidates to lead California’s public school system to participate in San Bernardino Community Forums

Tuck will appear this Saturday, April 21, at event hosted by social justice coalition, followed next month by Thurmond

(OAKLAND, CA) Assemblymember Tony Thurmond and educator Marshall Tuck – candidates in the California race for Superintendent of Public Instruction – will each visit San Bernardino to discuss their plans to address the persistent achievement gaps facing low-income students and students of color in a series of candidate forums presented by The Education Trust-West. In an election that will have a major impact on the future of California’s education system, voters will have the opportunity to engage directly with the candidates on their plans to improve California schools.

The Saturday forums, hosted by The Education Trust-West along with local Inland Valley and state partners, will give local educators, parents, students and community members the opportunity to learn how each candidate will tackle the challenges facing California public schools, with a focus on education justice and equity. For example, a recent report by The Education Trust-West found that there is not a single county in the state where the majority of Latino students are proficient in math or English language arts; candidates will share their proposed solutions to this and other inequities.

The first candidate forum this Saturday, April 21, will feature Tuck; the second on May 12 will feature Thurmond.

WHO: Marshall Tuck, Candidate for Superintendent of Public Instruction, and Current Executive Director of the Partnership for Los Angeles Schools

WHEN: Saturday, April 21, 10 a.m. – 12 p.m.
