AIR DATE: October 5, 2012

College Board, the national organization that administers the SAT test, recently released data on how states performed on the exam. On average, Nevada students scored 1450 on the test, that's just below the national average score of 1498. Nevada students didn't do especially well on reading, the average score was 496, which isn't a huge drop from the previous year, but still a 40 year low. Why did Nevada students score so low? We'll talk with Reno Gazetter Journal Education Blogger, Siobhan McAndrew about the latest scores.
