Statement by Tom Torlakson

Due to the outcome of the recent presidential election, there has been a great deal of concern among those in education, including those in adult education. Superintendent of Public Instruction, Tom Torlakson, has issued a statement to assure California public school students that they are safe from discrimination and bullying: 

“In California, diversity is strength. Our students come from all kinds of backgrounds, cultures, languages, and religions, and they all come together to learn on their way to success in 21st century careers and college. California already has, and will always maintain, strong legal and state constitutional protections against any and all kinds of discrimination, regardless of a student’s race, ethnicity, faith, sexual orientation, or gender identity.” 

The California Council for Adult Education strongly supports the sentiments expressed by the State Superintendent and wants to assure the 1.3 million adult education students in California that we will continue to serve and support their educational needs and interests.
