Please join SCG and the Education Funders Group for a discussion with Tom Torlakson, State Superintendent of Public Instruction, to learn about next steps in his vision and direction for our education system, including a focus on 21st Century learning.

California is changing nearly all aspects of its education system: providing more funding for schools, more local control over spending decisions, upgrading academic standards, implementing online testing and developing a new accountability system.

Superintendent Torlakson is playing a lead role in each of these major initiatives. As a part of these efforts, he’s working with a team of statewide education leaders to refine and implement the vision put forth in his first term plan, Blueprint for Great Schools.

We hope you can join us for this unique opportunity to engage in an intimate and interactive conversation with the Superintendent to discuss his thoughts on how to ensure we provide a world-class education for all students from early childhood to adulthood.
