Civil rights icon Dolores Huerta and the California Association of Bilingual Educators Political Action Committee have endorsed Tony Thurmond for State Superintendent of Public Instruction.
“Californians can count on Tony Thurmond to put children first and work each day to ensure every child has access to a quality education,” Huerta said.
“Education is the soul of America and the foundation of our democracy. Tony understands that a quality education has that power to up lift minority and underprivileged communities, and that is why I am so proud to support him,” she said.
“Tony Thurmond embraces opportunities for California students to develop multilingual skills in their Pre K-12 education,” said Rosalia Salinas, president of the Bilingual Educators PAC.
