Happy 32nd annual Day of the Teacher (DOT)! Today, Supt. of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson joined with the Mt. Diablo Education Association in Concord to honor teachers and their positive impact on their students and communities.
Tomorrow, the legislature will continue that process of honoring teachers by presenting a DOT resolution to CTA, which CTA Board Member Toby Boyd will be accepting on behalf of our 325,000 members in the Assembly chambers.
As we celebrate the hard work and dedication of our educators, we are also launching our TV ads that feature members from around the state encouraging the public to "ask a teacher" if they want to know more about what works best to help students learn and other local education issues.
The 30-second television spot can be viewed here. It's part of a campaign that will soon include radio, online and print ads focusing on the quality public schools and colleges all students deserve.
