Larry Aceves: What does a vote for him mean for your kids?

The race between Larry Aceves and Tom Torlakson for California Superintendent of Public Instruction in 2010 is unique, because it pits two non-party-affiliated educators rather than two politicians. What does a vote for Larry Aceves over Tom Torlakson mean? Here’s a quick California voters guide.

Aceves is running on a progressive platform, and he has made five major pledges:

Increase equitable school funding

Reduce mandates on educators

Provide modern instructional materials

Ensure accountability

Enhance career technical education

He has also received endorsements from the Los Angeles Times, San Francisco Chronicle, Oakland Tribune, Fresno Bee, Bakersfield Californian and dozens of educators throughout the state.
