NV Hires New Education Official

Nevada has a new deputy superintendent of student achievement.

Brett Barley is filling that position, according to a release from the Nevada Department of Education Thursday.

Barley was previously a vice president for educational lobbying firm StudentsFirst, an initiative led by Michelle Rhee that pushes charter schools and education reforms nationwide.

He will serve under Nevada's superintendent, Steve Canavero.

Casey Morell is the coordinating producer of Nevada Public Radio's flagship broadcast State of Nevada and one of the station's midday newscast announcers. (He's also been interviewed by Jimmy Fallon, whatever that's worth.)
