Candidates to lead California’s public school system participate in San Bernardino community forums

Posted by

(OAKLAND, CA) Following last month’s visit by educator Marshall Tuck, Assemblymember Tony Thurmond will visit San Bernardino on Saturday, May 12 to participate in the second in a pair of forums hosted by The Education Trust-West. The forums provide an opportunity for Tuck and Thurmond, candidates in the statewide race for Superintendent of Public Instruction, to discuss their plans to address the persistent achievement gaps facing low-income students and students of color. 

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 forums provide voters the opportunity to engage directly with the candidates on their plans to address these inequities and improve California schools.

The first candidate forum was Saturday, April 21, with Tuck; the second will be Saturday, May 12, with Thurmond.

WHO: Tony Thurmond, Candidate for Superintendent of Public Instruction, and Current California Assemblymember

WHEN: Saturday, May 12, 10 a.m. – 12 p.m.
