Superintendent of Public Instruction Torlakson to Discuss Efforts for Healthy Kids

As a former teacher and coach, Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson understands that students’ ability to learn effectively is related to their health.  

Like CTA, Supt. Torlakson is actively supporting statewide efforts to improve children’s health by encouraging them to eat healthy foods and to take part in physical activities.

This Wednesday, Supt. Torlakson and the Team California for Healthy Kids will talk to the media about the effectiveness of regional efforts. Other participants include educators, labor representatives, and business people.

Ensuring kids are healthy is a value Supt. Torlakson shares with CTA. We believe students who are healthy and physically fit are best prepared to master the increasingly difficult educational challenges confronting them.  Read more about how you can join in keeping kids healthy.
