Endorse Tom

Teaching kids is Tom's life’s work. As a teacher and a coach, Tom has always considered it a privilege to serve California’s children.

Whether it’s in the classroom, before and after school, or for the past three years as State Superintendent of Public Instruction, Tom's guiding principle is simple: doing what’s right for kids.

California’s schools are making progress. We’ve stopped the painful budget cuts and begun to invest in our children and our schools again. Graduation rates are at an all-time high and test scores are near their peak.

Of course, there’s much more to do – expanding career training, updating school technology, expanding access to the arts, and helping every child get off to the right start with access to quality preschool programs.

Please take a moment and join Tom's team today. And let's help Tom keep working to build a brighter future for California’s kids.

After taking part JUMPSTART (AmeriCorps’ federal program to benefit under-served school children) as a corps member and teacher assistant, I am more aware that we MUST re-elect Tom Torlakson for State Superintendent of Public Instruction. His past term in office and all the improvements that only he could have made possible should not be threatened by an opponent who is a Wallstreet Investment banker. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THAT YOU GET OUT THERE AND VOTE FOR TOM if you want do your part in improving our schools!

Tom has devoted his life to improving educational opportunities for California kids. He is the clear choice.

Having know Tom and his family plus having been part of his team in 2010, I do know that Tom is the best person for Superintendent. He will protect and improve public education for the benefit of all of us.

Met with local CTA representatives and I support this candidate 1000%! He knows and understand the BIG picture of the function of public education.

I personally endorse Tom. He is by far the most qualified person for Superintendent of Public Instruction. He has provided leadership that helps our schools stay relevant as we transition into the age of technology. He has always been an advocate for students first. He initiated learning and physical fitness programs and knows how to work with local and state elected officials to help students thrive.

As a product of public education, I am proud to endorse Tom Torlakson! As a teacher, he knows what is needed to fix our schools and make them work for our students! For all of the attacks on teachers I can say that it was my teachers who helped shape me, not the politicians! My teachers always believed in me! And I oppose those who wish to blame bad decisions of Washington Politicians on our teachers. Marshall Tuck has a history of being absent when the tough decisions needed to be made. Superintendent of Public Instruction Torlakson has a history of doing what is right for students!

Tom has always supported IES in our outreach to our Nations Capital in Washington, his support has been critical to the success of many programs that benefit K-12 directly.

We are ready to take on “he who shall remain nameless” and all the other cowards who hide by phony names. Tom cares about the kids, not the politics…very rare indeed!!!

I like Tom Torlakson because he doesn’t think too much, and he always follows orders. He’s not for shaking up the status quo, nor will he challenge powerful Sacramento interests. That’s why I, Lord Voldemort, support Tom Torlakson!

Public education has improved since Tom took office. We must continue the progress. Vote Tom!

Tom Torlakson is the ideal leader for our school system. He has crystal clear vision and has real classroom experience. After several direct conversations with Superintendent Torlakson I enthusiastically endorse him.

As a life-long teacher, I can clearly see that we absolutely have to re-elect Torlakson if we want to keep our California schools. The alternative is unthinkable.
