State superintendents, elected officials launch Californians for President Obama's Early Learning Plan
April 03, 2013, 05:00 AM
Superintendents, legislators, business leaders and child advocates launched "Californians for President Obama's Early Learning Plan," a campaign to galvanize support for the president's early learning plan and position California to leverage new federal funds, Tuesday.

"I welcome President Obama's call for making early learning a national priority," said State Superintendent Tom Torlakson. "K-12 education leaders recognize that improving graduation rates and ensuring our high school graduates are well-educated and ready for college and career, starts with strategic investments in infants, toddlers and preschoolers."

Among those supporting the effort are the superintendents of many San Mateo County school districts including: Maggie MacIsaac from Burlingame Elementary; Craig Baker from San Carlos Elementary; Cynthia Simms from San Mateo-Foster City Elementary; Thomas Minshew from Jefferson Union High; Ron Galatolo from San Mateo County Community College; Carol Piraino from Portola Valley Elementary; Beth Polito from Woodside Elementary; Alejandro Hogan from South San Francisco Unified; Jan Christensen from Redwood City Elementary; Nellie Hungerford and Suzanne Roy from Belmont-Redwood Shores Elementary; Toni Presta from Bayshore and Brisbane Elementary; Wendy Tukloff from Pacifica; Bernardo Vidales from Jefferson Elementary; and Scott Laurence from San Mateo Union High school districts.

Daily Journal Quick Poll
What do you think of the pending closure of Tpumps in downtown San Mateo?

Surprised, it was super popular
Makes sense, the shop was too small
Hope they find their way back to San Mateo soon
There are plenty of other boba tea places
Glad, boba drinks make the sidewalks a sticky mess
