Education is Essential: Line the Street at 6ft

(Carson City, NV) — On Wednesday, July 8th at Noon, the Nevada State Education Association will be hosting an "Education Is Essential: Line The Street at 6 Feet" event outside of the Nevada State Legislative Building. NSEA is expecting the legislature to deliberate a budget-balancing proposal that includes $156M in K-12 education cuts with no new revenue.

“Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, Nevada’s neighborhood public schools were already chronically under-funded with the most crowded classrooms in the country,” said Brian Rippet, President of the Nevada State Education Association. “As we reopen our schools, districts will have new expenses to implement state recommended health and safety guidelines. Cuts to public education will compromise the ability to safely reopen, jeopardizing the safety of our kids, educators, and community.“

The event is a call to action to fund healthy schools. “The future of Nevada’s recovery runs through our schools. The State’s approach to revenue in the past was never sufficient, and it certainly will not be while dealing with a crisis and moving forward in a post-COVID-19 world,” said Dawn Miller, Vice President of NSEA. “NSEA is calling on any budget-balancing plan, for this biennium or next, to include at least a dollar of new revenue for any dollar cut from public education, a shared sacrifice.”
