SUBMITTED NEWS RELEASE
Rory Reid, Nevada State Education Association President Lynn Warne and five Northern Nevada teachers will participate in a roundtable discussion about the future of education in Nevada in Reno Thursday morning. The location is still to be determined.
“With our whole economic future riding on educational success, this election must be about building the bridge between strong schools and a stronger economy,” Reid said. “That’s my approach. I have presented my plan in detail, and it is backed by the strength of my convictions. Unfortunately, Brian Sandoval has a very different approach. Sandoval proposes slashing teacher salaries by 20 percent or laying off more than 5,000 Nevada teachers, which will devastate our already struggling schools.”
Warne oversees the NSEA, which represents more than 30,000 Nevada educators.
“We’ve already cut our schools to the bone, and now Sandoval wants to continue Jim Gibbons legacy of cutting education and overcrowd our classrooms. On top of that, Sandoval wants to treat our dedicated educators like reality show contestants, forcing one-in-five to be voted off the island,” Warne said. “Rory is the only candidate for governor fighting for better schools and proposing giving teachers the freedom to do what they were trained to do.”
