Marshall Tuck believes in the power of public schools to change lives and has spent over two decades working to make it happen.
Prior to joining EdVoice, Marshall was the Head of Education Recovery at GPSN, where he led the creation of the Los Angeles Education Recovery Fund, an effort which raised close to $17 million to fund high quality nonprofit organizations to provide additional academic, enrichment and health related supports to children in Los Angeles who were most impacted by the pandemic.
Marshall was the founding CEO of the Partnership for Los Angeles Schools, one of the leading public-school turnaround organizations in the country, which manages 20 public schools serving 13,500 students. Under Marshall’s leadership, the Partnership schools had the highest academic improvement among California’s school systems with more than 10,000 students. Graduation rates at the Partnership schools were 36% when it launched in 2008 and have grown to 88% today. Marshall was also the President of Green Dot Public Schools, a charter school operator in Los Angeles. Eight of the 10 new charter schools Marshall helped create at Green Dot have ranked among the top high schools in America by U.S. News & World Report.
Marshall was a candidate for California State Superintendent of Public Instruction and received 5.2 million votes (49.1%) in the 2018 election. He has also been an Educator in Residence at the New Teacher Center, worked on efforts to increase public school funding and elect strong education candidates to public office, and taught English and Math internationally.
