Fight for Education
Please attend a rally, organized by the Nevada State Education Association, on Saturday, February 13 from 9 until 1 at City Hall in support of stopping the budget cuts for education. The Governor is asking for schools to propose budgets with 10-20% cuts for the 2010-2011 school year. Approximately, 650 teachers in Washoe County will lose their jobs. We are at the bottom of the list for per pupil expenditures, but 18th from the top in the number of objectives covered by teachers. Your attendance is not need for the entire time, but showing up will make an impression. If you are unable to attend, please write your Governor about express your concern for the future.
