Yesterday, Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval gave his state of the state address, unveiling several student-centered education priorities, including $60 million to implement the state’s historic Education Savings Account (ESA) program.
Governor Sandoval implored leaders to help him modernize education by supporting the state’s ESA program and moving forward with a weighted student funding formula that ensures all students receive the necessary resources to be successful.
“We’ve heard from thousands of Nevada families about how crucial it is that we give them freedom of choice in the education of their children. I look forward to building a bi-partisan solution to get this done. It’s time to give Nevada families more choice.” – Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval
The Governor also proposed investments in workforce development programs to better prepare Nevada students with skills for the 21st-century economy.
