Letter (Phil Sorensen): ‘Larry Reilly is the clear choice for LTUSD School Board’
Larry Reilly is the most qualified candidate for the LTUSD School Board. He has dedicated his life to education in the Lake Tahoe basin, holding the same teaching position at George Whittell High School for over 30 years. As one of his colleagues at Whittell and a concerned LTUSD parent, I can vouch for Larry Reilly’s clear understanding of educational policy and his ability to communicate and work with both school administration and the community.
Currently, public education is at a crossroads both nationally and locally. Increasingly, forces outside of public education are seeking to influence what happens in our schools. Textbook publishers, consortiums funded by philanthropists and academic “experts” with limited experience in public schools, are doing their best to influence local school boards. Larry Reilly’s steady presence in our community, throughout the educational reforms of the 1980s to the present, will bring experience and perspective to the LTUSD School Board, something that no other candidate can provide.
Larry Reilly is the clear choice for LTUSD School Board.
