Folks with a keen interest in the race
for state superintendent for public instruction, and with a free
Friday night should check out what will likely be a lively debate
between the candidates.
The debate will actually take place
Friday from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Sacramento Convention Center.
However, it will be taped and broadcast at 7 p.m. that night on the California
Sen. Gloria Romero and Assemblyman Tom
Torlakson will face off in the debate, and controversial education
reforms backed by President Barack Obama are likely to take center
stage. Romero is for them; Torlakson is not.
Former school superintendent Larry
Aceves and teacher Diane Lenning will also participate in the debate.
The debate is co-sponsored by California’s PTA and the
League of Women Voters of California Education Fund.
