Script: Tom Torlakson is a candidate for Superintendent of Public Instruction, who has taken his classroom experience as a science teacher to fight for our kids and schools.  As a legislator, Tom Torlakson promoted successful preschool programs and fought to make schools safer.  And now he’s leading the fight to protect funding for smaller class sizes and to reduce the dropout rate.  As Superintendent, Tom Torlakson wants quality neighborhood schools for all students. He wants to restore art and music - so kids get a well-rounded education. And he’ll make sure that school districts don’t waste precious dollars, but work to meet the highest of standards for students. We urge you to vote June 8 for Tom Torlakson, he’ll put our neighborhood schools first.  Paid for by Torlakson for Superintendant of Public Instruction 2010 with funding from teachers and school employees, California Teachers Association Independent Expenditure Committee and California Federation of Teachers COPE committee.  Not authorized by a candidate or a committee controlled by a candidate.
