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.

I’ve followed Tom since the days of fighting the garbage dump they wanted to put near the Concord Pavilion.

I am making the endorsement personally. I whole-hardheartedly support the Superintendent for the great job he has and is performing to improve education for all students in California. I’m most impressed with his commitment to nutrition education, food access, and physical activity

When I’m home I’ll sign up for monthly donations. I heard that Marco Petruzzi is expected to challenge you, and no doubt Students First and other anti-public ed, pro-charter/voucher orgs will pump $$$millions into his campaign. We in PVFT (AFT #1936) will do all we can to support you, as I will personally.

I consider Tom and Mae personal friends and I certainly campaigned very hard for him in 2010 when Senator Marty Block and I were still “Married” but I have always been a huge fanand want to help.

As president of CSBA 2011, I had the privilege of working with Tom on a number of important issues – healthy children, College and Career, to name a couple. He is a committed, engaged and dedicated to improving our public education system for the over 6 million children in California.
