Educators for Harry Reid

“The members of NSEA support Senator Reid in his re-election bid this November. We commend Senator Reid for his commitment to K-12 public education, seeking healthcare for the uninsured, and fighting for federal money for our schools to preserve jobs as well as programs and services. Our members are ready to work on his behalf to keep him as our advocate in Washington, D.C.”
Lynn Warne, President Nevada State Education Association
"Senator Reid has a longstanding record of support for making quality higher education affordable for Nevada students. In particular he has secured over $230 million in federal funding over the past four years for research projects at Nevada’s colleges and universities and was successful in passing the Recovery Act which included nearly $200 million in stabilization funds for Nevada higher education and increased Pell Grants and other financial aid for students."
Scott Huber, President Nevada Faculty Alliance

Dear fellow Nevada Educators:

As someone whose life was transformed by education, Senator Harry Reid believes very strongly that all Nevadans should have the opportunity to receive a solid education by highly qualified teachers and professors. That’s why Senator Reid leverages his clout as Majority Leader to fight for the resources that our state desperately needs to improve our struggling education system.

Whether it’s working to make college more affordable, retooling No Child Left Behind, or fighting for the funding that Governor Jim Gibbons would leave on the table, Senator Reid has proven that his priorities lie with Nevada’s students and their teachers.

Through the Economic Recovery Act alone, Senator Reid secured more than $400 million for Nevada’s schools, colleges and universities to help prevent layoffs and draconian cuts in basic services for our students.

And because Senator Reid is always ready to stand up for Nevada’s educators, we are asking that you join us as members of Educators for Harry Reid to support our state’s senior senator.

Take a moment to explore this web page to learn exactly how Senator Reid has used his leadership position to keep his promises to Nevada’s educators. Once you do, we hope that you will add your voice to ours—we are educators at all levels who are committed to supporting Senator Reid for his long track record of fighting on behalf those who are responsible for providing Nevadans with quality, affordable education.
