The Bakersfield Californian Endorses Marshall Tuck

Superintendent of Public Instruction – A non-partisan constitutional statewide office, the post of Superintendent of Public Instruction can serve as a bully pulpit to help set California education policies. Two Democrats – Assemblyman Tony Thurmond and education reform advocate Marshall Tuck – are vying for the post. The race is shaping up as a contest between public teachers’ unions and charter school advocates. Because of his long involvement in educational reform efforts, voters should elect Tuck.
