Gubernatorial Candidates' Forum

The top contenders in the California Governor’s race offered their vision for public schools during a first-of-its kind panel at the California School Boards Association’s Annual Education and Trade Show in San Diego. The December 2017 event was the first of the campaign season to showcase the six major candidates and also the first to feature thoughts on education from gubernatorial aspirants on both sides of the political aisle.

California Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom; California State Treasurer John Chiang; California Assemblymember Travis Allen; former California State Superintendent of Public Instruction Delaine Eastin; former Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa; and businessman John Cox joined panel moderator and CSBA’s CEO & Executive Director Vernon M. Billy in a lively discussion of the past, present and future of California’s public schools.

Please view the clips below for highlights of this special event.
