*** Tony Thurmond has been endorsed for State Superintendent of Public Instruction by the CDP ***

Dear Friend,

With 6 days to go until Election Day, you have been hearing a lot about my campaign for State Superintendent of Public Instruction. (Have you taken the time to share our ad on Facebook yet?)

But not even an election can slow our progress passing legislation that our kids in California need today. I’m excited to report that three of my education bills passed the Assembly this week:

  • My bill AB 2168 helps our schools retain high-quality special education teachers
  • My bill AB 2514 expands dual language immersion programs to support English language learners
  • My bill AB 2160 ensures the playground attendants who keep our students safe actually have rights and benefits

And there’s more work left to be done. My bills to tax private prisons to fund preschool and to expand STEM education, among others, will head to the Assembly floor soon. By investing in educators and increasing funding for programs, we’re fighting to close the achievement gap for special education, bilingual, and minority students.

Ultimately, your support for my campaign will allow me to do even more for public education as State Superintendent of Public Instruction. Will you make a contribution today to help me do more for our kids?

I’m running to fully fund our schools, keep students safe, encourage creativity and critical thinking in the classroom, and prepare all of our students for the jobs of tomorrow. You can read my policy plan at

Thank you,

Tony Thurmond
