What’s at stake in the race for state superintendent of public instruction? It’s one of many races that don’t typically receive a lot of coverage, but this year, the race between two Democrats, Marshall Tuck and Assemblyman Tony Thurmond, has centered on the debate over charter schools. It has also become California’s second-most-expensive race this year. KQED’s California Politics and Government Desk joins host Thuy Vu to discuss the candidates, their backers and why this race has gotten so much money.
