San Diego, CA – California Charter Schools Association (CCSA) Advocates today announced its endorsement of Marshall Tuck for California State Superintendent. With a proven track record of increasing graduation rates, improving student achievement, and turning around failing schools, Tuck is the clear choice for California’s students.
“For over a decade, I’ve known Marshall as a passionate leader who believes in the power and the promise of public education,” said Gary Borden, executive director, CCSA Advocates. “As someone who has spent over fifteen years working for students and teachers, he understands the real challenges facing public education in California. I have no doubt that he will be a powerful advocate for all of California’s public school students as State Superintendent.”
Tuck has long-been a champion for California’s public school students. He lead two public school systems as head of the Partnership for Los Angeles Schools and the Green Dot Public Schools. While serving in his role at the Partnership for Los Angeles Schools, Tuck turned around public schools in some of the poorest communities in Los Angeles. He most recently served as Educator-in-Residence at the nonprofit New Teacher Center.
“I got into this work because I believe every child deserves a quality public school. As State Superintendent, I will do everything I can to make that a reality in every community in California,” said Marshall Tuck. “I’m proud to accept this endorsement from CCSA Advocates.”
