Gov. Jerry Brown has proven his support for public education and has won CFT’s endorsement for reelection in 2014. Brown worked closely with CFT to pass Proposition 30, bringing needed monies to California schools and colleges. He also shaped a historic K-12 school funding bill that provides additional resources to English learners and students from low-income families.
State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson has also won CFT support. Torlakson is committed to expanding early childhood education and has demonstrated a strong interest in career and technical education, and supports fair accreditation in the community colleges.
