California Teachers Association President Dean Vogel will be visiting Lake Tahoe Community College on May 7 for an evening of discussion about the current state of California’s public education system.
This is Vogel’s first official visit to the Lake Tahoe Basin since becoming CTA president. Teachers, students, school staff and administrators, and all community members interested in the health of public education are welcome to attend the 5-7pm event at the Duke Theatre.
Vogel will begin by sharing the educator’s perspective on the problems K-12 schools and community colleges face in California, and how CTA’s organizing plan can help to improve public education in our state. He’ll also discuss school funding and Gov. Jerry Brown’s tax initiatives on November’s ballot.
Following his remarks, Vogel will host a Q&A session and an informal reception. Light refreshments will be served.
CTA’s Higher Education Director Theresa Montaño will also be available to discuss issues within the California State University system and the community colleges.
This event is being hosted by LTCC’s Classified Employees Union and Faculty Association.
