Fixing Nevada's worst-in-the-nation public schools is among my highest priorities
Read my 8-Point Plan on Education HERE
Improving Nevada’s schools are the key to successfully addressing every other challenge facing our state.
Creating better schools requires:
An in-depth understanding of our dysfunctional school situation.
The moral courage to confront everything and everyone responsible for it.
The ONLY long-term fix for our broken schools is a universal voucher system that forces our public schools to compete for students.
This would give EVERY parent of a school-age child - including home-school parents - the State's full-funding amount to apply toward the education option of their choice.
But unitl that voucher system can be implemented, I will make the following changes to our public schools IMMEDIATELY.
GIVING THE SCHOOLS MORE MONEY IS NOT THE ANSWER.
Florida schools fund at the same amount and are rated 3rd in the nation.
7 other states fund their schools lower than NV and perform much higher
TEACHERS' UNIONS - WHAT'S THE ANSWER?
EVERY candidate says that Teachers' Unions are the biggest problem...and they are. But NO other candidate UNDERSTANDS the Teachers' Union problem sufficiently to offer a solution.
The answer is SIMPLE, and it lies COMPLETELY in the hands of Nevada’s 20,000 teachers.
If NV's teachers want the public's support in taking back our schools, they have to either:
BUT IF the teachers will neither demand Union changes, NOR quit/decertify their Union, then the teachers are part of the problem and need to be dealt with as such.
We're Taking nevada back
