Incumbent Susan Castillo is facing state representative Ron Maurer in the race to become the state’s superintendent of public instruction. This is two-person non-partisan race (with partisan overtones: Castillo was a Democratic state senator; Maurer is a Republican representative), so it will be decided in the primary.
Other issues have come to the fore in the course of the campaign, including guns in schools, high school diploma requirements, and how much “tension” there should be between the superintendent and school employees’ unions.
What issues are most important to you? And what questions do you have for the two people who want to manage the state’s k-12 system?
