Incumbent Tom Torlakson is a former teacher and is supported by both major teacher unions. He supports extension of Prop. 30 taxes passed in 2012 which have restored funding to California schools after the devastation of the national economic crisis when over 30,000 teachers were dismissed in the state. Schools in other states without new taxes currently continue to reel from austerity budget cuts.
This effort by many anti - union philanthropists and a group of Democrats, to gain control of this office raised in just one week dwarfs the $2 million raised by teachers’ unions in favor of Torlakson.
Corporate advocates want Tuck in office to support the anti tenure decisions and anti teacher due process procedures of the Vergara v. California case.
