Position Papers
Teacher Training -- Key to Educational Progress
Miracles can happen when a child has an excellent teacher. Providing each child with an excellent teacher is an attainable goal, if we commit our resources to it.
Local Autonomy: A Fundamental Value
What lesson should we draw from the Oakland disaster of 2003? Should we strengthen local school boards, or should we take their powers away and micromanage local affairs from a central county office?
Why I Support Preschool for All (Prop. 82)
Assemblywoman Wilma Chan and I are part of the countywide leadership for Proposition 82, Preschool for All. Preschool can make the difference between success and failure in school, college, and life.
