Remembering Delaine Eastin – The Only Woman to be Elected State Superintendent

The only woman elected as California’s superintendent of public instruction, Delaine Eastin, recently passed from complications of a stroke at the age of 76. She was known for effectively championing issues she cared about, including raising academic standards, lowering class sizes, and instilling the importance of nature in schools.
