1. Agenda
2. SPI State of Education Address

" I am also sponsoring legislation by my good friend, Chair of the Assembly Education Committee Julia Brownley, to place a major school facilities bond on the next statewide ballot. I expect a special election this year, and this bond measure should be on it. This measure would create jobs. It would help stimulate the construction of schools designed for 21st century learning as well as energy efficient, high-performing "green" schools that would help tomorrow's students compete and achieve."

3. SPI State of Education Address

"Economics tells us the best way to deal with a downturn is to invest and plan for the inevitable uptick. So right now, let's envision and plan for schools that are not only friendly to our environment and our communities but that are truly designed for the 21st century learning needs of our students. Let's plan for schools that are built based on educational needs, not on funding constraints. This economy will recover, and school construction will help to revive it."

"In a global economy where the most valuable skill you can sell is your knowledge, a good education is no longer just a pathway to opportunity - it is a pre-requisite. The countries that out-teach us today will out-compete us tomorrow."
