The November election pits Assemblyman Tony Thurmond against school reformer Marshall Tuck to become California’s public schools superintendent.
On Friday, they will participate in a “conversation” about the future of public education hosted by the Public Policy Institute of California at the Sheraton Grand Hotel in downtown Sacramento.
The 90-minute event begins at noon. You can sign up to attend at this link.

The event also will be live-streamed via the web. That, too, requires registration at this link.
Both candidates in the nonpartisan race are Democrats.
Tuck led a six-candidate field in the primary with 37 percent of the vote, and Thurmond was second with 35.6 percent.
EdSource does an excellent job of reporting where Thurmond and Tuck stand on the key issues in this post-primary story.
