Today, the Yes On Prop. 51 campaign announced that Marshall Tuck endorsed the Kindergarten Through Community College Public Education Facilities Bond Act of 2016.

Torlakson: Vote Yes on Proposition 51
Our local schools and communities would lose hundreds of millions of dollars in desperately needed school facilities funding if Proposition 51 is not approved this November. Proposition 51 provides critically needed funding for K-12 and community colleges to repair and fix old schools and build new classrooms.
As an educator, parent and lifelong advocate for all children, I fundamentally believe that our state has an obligation to provide equal school facilities funding for all students. Too many of our schools are in need of vital health and safety repairs. Our career technical education programs that train returning veterans or displaced workers are in desperate need of additional resources, and in many areas we have schools that are experiencing severe overcrowding.

Proposition 51 is a statewide school facilities bond that will appear on the November ballot to clear the current multi-billion dollar backlog of school construction projects awaiting state funding, and put a significant dent in the future projected school facilities need. With too many children attending school in aging classrooms without modern resources, Prop 51 will invest in these students’ lives and increase the potential for their success by upgrading schools to meet current health and safety standards, and improving classroom technology, computers systems, science labs, libraries and facilities that support career technical education. The state has not passed a bond since 2006, and students and teachers are paying a price for it.
The Yes on Proposition 51 campaign would appreciate your publication’s endorsement and has attached a briefing document outlining the following:
