SACRAMENTO -- Citing his leadership in improving student achievement and turning around low-performing schools, United States Senator Dianne Feinstein today endorsed teacher and State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson.
"I am thrilled to support Tom Torlakson for State Superintendent of education," Senator Feinstein stated. "Tom Torlakson has demonstrated his great commitment to California schools and has always put our children first. We need Tom's continued leadership to improve student achievement and turn low-performing schools around."
A second-generation public school teacher, Torlakson is seeking a second term as State Superintendent of Public Instruction. Torlakson uses his classroom experience to make schools safer, help more students graduate with real-world skills, and put more decision-making over education dollars in the hands in the hands of parents, teachers and communities.
