A Message to California Students

Your experiences in classrooms today prepare you for the economy and society you will enter once you graduate. And those of us who work in education remain committed to making sure you have access to the tools and opportunities you need to succeed. In these pages are some of those tools, ranging from help dealing with bullying to information on our state’s approach to testing. —Tom Torlakson, State Superintendent of Public Instruction
