To begin, please tell us your story. What was your career path like?

My mother was an immigrant from Panama who came to San Jose, California, to be a teacher. My father was a soldier who didn’t return to his family after the Vietnam War. I was born at Fort Ord in Monterey, California. After my mother died when I was 6, my brother and I were raised by a cousin who we had never met until we showed up on her doorstep.

Comment regarding the Public Charge Final Rule and how it could impact immigrant families...

"...We are particularly concerned that our immigrant students will go hungry.

So we want to repeat: The National School Lunch Program, School Breakfast Program, Seamless Summer Option, Afterschool Meal Supplement, Special Milk Program, Child and Adult Care Food Program, and Summer Food Service Program are NOT considered public benefits that could impact an individual’s immigration status. 

We are already communicating this message via public service announcements, letters to schools, and social media. And we hope that all school communities share it widely as well."
—Tony Thurmond
State Superintendent of Public Instruction
