CALIFORNIA, USA — This story was originally published by CalMatters. Gov. Gavin Newsom and legislative leaders had a lot of people to thank when they gathered earlier this week to announce the state’s plan to reopen public schools.

The Interview: Tony Thurmond: Class Act

An intimate conversation with California State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tony Thurmond. Tony Thurmond has a big job. Elected California’s state superintendent of public instruction in 2018, Thurmond is responsible for one of the largest public school systems in the country, with more than 6 million students and 10,000 schools. And he is serving in the middle of a pandemic in which teaching and learning have been turned upside down. If anyone is up for the challenge it’s Thurmond, who makes a habit of beating the odds. His mother — an immigrant from Panama — died when he was 6 years old. He didn’t meet his father until he was an adult. He graduated from Temple University (where he was student body president), then earned dual master’s degrees from Bryn Mawr College. Before being elected superintendent, Thurmond served in local government in the East Bay and four years in the State Assembly. I caught up with the superintendent at our annual Bay Scholars luncheon in November. His optimism, candid assessment of the challenges our kids face and passion for the transformative power of education is infectious. Meet Tony Thurmond.
