Steve Sisolak on Education

 

 


Dollars follow students, not districts nor schools

Two years ago, in the 2019 Legislative Session we began the process of modernizing Nevada's 53-year-old education funding formula. We took a significant step in the right direction with the creation of the Pupil-Centered Funding Plan. Education funding should be allocated to meet each student's learning needs. The dollars should follow the students, rather than being connected to districts or schools.

Raise teacher's pay; cover cost of supplies

Our educators deserve a raise. It has been over a decade since the state has funded a raise. I am asking you to stand with me and stand with our educators by including them in the 3% pay raise for state employees for the first time in 12 years. Too many teachers have been forced to dig into their own pockets to make sure their students have basic supplies. I am proposing additional funding to reimburse teachers for supplies they need raising the total from $100 to $180 per teacher.

Don't divert funds from public schools to private schools

Q: Increase funding for K-12 education?

Adam Laxalt (R): Vows not to reduce funding; will look at budget on possible increase.

Steve Sisolak (D): Restore funding to at least pre-recession levels. Shift money from hotel tax and marijuana tax toward schools.

Q: Provide support to parents to send their children to private schools with public money?

Adam Laxalt (R): Yes. Supported voucher-style Education Savings Accounts. "We're not funding private schools; we're funding an education for our students."

Steve Sisolak (D): No. "Will always fight against the diversion of funding from public schools into private schools."

Against tax dollars diverted to private schools

Steve is himself a product of public schools, and his own daughters attended Nevada public high schools. As Governor, he will restore funding to at least pre-recession levels and prioritize class size reduction. And Steve will always fight against the diversion of funding from public schools into private schools.
