Why is this happening? Why has Nevada dropped to dead last? The administration of the NV DOE is more about form than substance. They constantly confuse “activity” with “achievement”. I can’t keep up with the number of new programs started under this administration. They have no understanding of education or what it takes to increase student performance. Education is not sexy and glitzy, it requires hard work, every day, in the classroom.
Our community and business leaders have allowed a culture that is more about supporting one-another, not supporting good education. The mentality, he’s my friend so I need to support him, is hurting education in the state. The result, Nevada is ranked dead last in the nation – not the fastest improving as we were before the Gibbons-Sandoval administrations.Download Newsletter (.doc)
