The California Superintendent of Public Instruction oversees how the state's more than 10,000 k-12 schools spend money. And while the job does not set education policy, it wields a lot of influence over legislation and the state's education agenda. As part of our Election 2018 coverage, we’ll meet the two candidates for superintendent of public instruction: former charter school executive Marshall Tuck and state assembly member Tony Thurmond.
