Governor Brian Sandoval recently announced the state would add some money back into the education system in Nevada. Nevada's K-12 schools will get an additional $242 million added to their budget but Nevada's colleges and universities will get a fraction of that, about $20-million. Amidst those budget cuts is the threat that Nevada State College could be closed completely or folded into another schools. So despite the good budget news from the Economic Forum, the Nevada System of Higher Education is still on shaky ground. We'll talk with Regent, Michale Wixom and an administrator from NSC about the future of colleges in Nevada.
