Los Angeles – Marshall Tuck, public school leader and candidate for State Superintendent of Public Instruction, has released an extensive plan to support and improve California’s public schools. He calls on our state to make public education its top policy priority, and points to his plan as a framework for making California’s public schools among the very best in the nation.
“The campaign to be the top education official in our state should be about our kids, and our plan to give all of them a quality public education. Our plan doesn’t prescribe or define every policy proposal—instead, it is a way of starting the conversation about the breadth of the work that needs to be done. It’s not typical for a campaign to put out a plan like this. But we aren’t running this campaign just to win—we want this to be the beginning of a 10-year effort to make California’s public schools the very best.”
Tuck has worked in public education for fifteen years, leading two public school systems as head of the Partnership for Los Angeles Schools, and the Green Dot Public Schools. Most recently he served as Educator-in-Residence at the nonprofit New Teacher Center. He used his experience building and turning around public schools in some of the poorest communities in Los Angeles, along with research, and feedback from educators and other experts to help build the plan released yesterday.
