Re "Big money pours into California schools chief race as challenger gains steam" (Capitol & California, May 19): Marshall Tuck has a possibility of winning an election if he finds a better way to help the Californian students. Tuck wants the best for California schools. As a mother, I too would want and expect the best for my child's education and future.
However, I understand that with budget cuts, education can be harmed because of money. If there is no money, that means less education, programs and children with better education.
After school programs are very helpful for children. As a volunteer student, I have seen the difference it makes. The after school programs have helped me throughout school when I was young, I know that it makes a difference when you get extra help in school.
