Comprehensive plan is the tonic needed to improve schools’ health in Nevada

Mar 4, 2019 by

Reducing class sizes, boosting pay for public school teachers and enhancing career and vocational training education are tent-pole elements of Nevada Democrats’ plans for public education.

To which the Sun says yes, yes and yes.

With tax revenues being juiced by the improving economy and the influx of residents into the state, this is prime time to boost Nevada’s investment in its public schools.

Gov. Steve Sisolak and legislative leaders insist that improvements can be paid for without raising taxes, but rather by using the increased revenue and by shifting savings they believe can be found in other budget items. Other steps include ensuring that marijuana tax revenue is going into the K-12 system.

But clearly, Nevada must deal with class sizes and teacher pay.
