Governor Sandoval wants to have all-day kindergarten in schools with high risk kids. He also wants to bring back discussions about school choice. The 2013 legislative session is still a couple weeks away. We'll look at what Democrats and Republicans think about the state of education in Nevada, and more.

A Voucher System is a vicious circle - monies taken away from public schools to fund vouchers for families who cannot afford (underline afford) a private/religious school. Mo Denis, it is not a 'right' to receive a voucher, it is a 'right' for your child to attend a public school!! As Mo Denis stated 'parents have a right to choose' . Fine, choose but not at the privilege of receiving a voucher that takes monies from your neighborhood PUBLIC school. Rosemary denis –Jan 22, 2013 09:43:00 AM
When you are discussing class size please keep in mind the physical dimensions of the actual classroom. Especially in the older schools the rooms are not physically big enough for 30 desks and children and teachers and books etc.Laurie Kalnin –Jan 22, 2013 09:27:12 AM
Why doesn't class size reduction apply school by school? CCSD only has to report the average across the district. This means some schools are still over the ratio while the smaller, rural areas have many less students.A Parent in Henderson –Jan 22, 2013 09:25:25 AM
Does Ass. Stewart consider his bill regarding mental health to be an increase of the role of government over the individual?Jim in Henderson –Jan 22, 2013 09:13:02 AM
