Tony Thurmond for State Superintendent of Public Instruction

The California Democratic Party’s only choice for top educator!

Tony Thurmond is the
clear choice for our next
State Superintendent of
Public Instruction

Tony is a new leader who believes fully funding our public schools is the key to California’s future, and he wants to make our education system the best in the nation. That’s why he has made kids and public education his top priority throughout his public service.

As State Superintendent of Public Instruction, he will work to increase funding to make sure that our kids can succeed.

  • Fully funding education in every community
  • Science, technology, engineering, and math learning in every school
  • New tech innovation internships
  • And safe classrooms for ALL of our students

Tony believes that our schools have a responsibility to help all students succeed, especially our most at-risk students. He has a plan to expand mental health and social service programs in our schools, so that students who face outside barriers to learning–such as homelessness or severe trauma–can overcome these obstacles and get the education they deserve.

Tony Thurmond supports full funding of higher education because he believes all qualified California students deserve a seat in California’s colleges.

That’s why Tony is endorsed by classroom teachers, civil rights leaders, business leaders and labor leaders.


“Thurmond has demonstrated an unwavering commitment to at-risk students and a deep understanding of the obstacles they face.”

“Thurmond has walked the walk in a field too often dominated by Ivy League idealists. His history of working with kids – poor kids, disabled kids, foster kids – shows a deep commitment to the students who most need a champion.”


Tony Thurmond is the only candidate endorsed by the California Democratic Party!
