Should Community Colleges Be Governed With K-12?
Should Community Colleges Be Governed With K-12?

Listen
AIR DATE: April 9, 2013

Sen. Barbara Cegavske wants to shift oversight of community colleges in Nevada from the Nevada Department of Higher Education to the Department of Education.  In remarks to the legislature this week, Cegavske said aligning K-12 and community colleges through this shift gives opportunity for greater coordination with high schools, families, and students that make for better transitions during the critical time between graduation and  adulthood. Cegavske has introduced a bill to make this change and she joins us to talk about her vision.

    Considering that any number of studies show that academic standards have become so low that K-college these days is, broadly speaking, equivalent to the K-12 of 60 years ago, perhaps it makes sense to govern them as one entity ;-)
