Dwight Jones's blueprint for education reform in Clark County
Dwight Jones's blueprint for education reform in Clark County

Listen
AIR DATE: June 27, 2011

The legislative session is over and the cuts to the Clark County School District aren't as bad as expected. With new found money in the state budget the district won't have to make mass layoffs and will even be able to afford to bring back some support staff. While the legislature was busy figuring out what and where to cut CCSD Superintendent, Dwight Jones was busy coming up with a plan for reforms he would like to implement in the district. Dwight Jones joins us to talk about his plan for academic improvement at CCSD and the outcome of the 2011 legislature.
 
GUEST
Dwight Jones, Superintendent , CCSD

    as a retired teacher and now a substitute for ccsd, i can write that no amount of funding will fix what really ails our failing schools...life outside the classroom.

    I would be more concerned at the low level of funding.

    With the low rating of our education system I am troubled that I see students getting out of school between approximately 12:30 to 1:30 PM. why aren't children in school until 3:00 PM. that was the standard where I grew up.
