Marshall Tuck Announces 2018 Bid for State Superintendent

If you’re wondering why the name Marshall Tuck sounds familiar, it’s because he ran unsuccessfully for State Superintendent of Public Instruction against winner Tom Torlakson in 2014.

However, while Tuck has a history of being charter-friendly, having previously led the charter network Green Dot Public Schools, he says that he does not support for-profit charters or school vouchers.
