Memo: NSEA Supports Assembly Bill 376

NSEA supports AB376, The Keep Nevada Working Act, to value, uphold, and defend Nevada’s immigrant community.
Support AB376
Published: 04/07/2021

NSEA represents educators across the state of Nevada who dedicate themselves to the education of every Nevada student.

About 42% of Nevada students have at least one immigrant parent, with 17% of Nevada students currently identified as English learners.

Educators know students need to feel safe and supported at school in order to be best prepared to learn. Students who are immigrants or children of immigrants should be able to attend schools who embrace them and their families. They should never have to worry about their family’s immigration status at school.

Meanwhile, we know Nevada’s schools are chronically underfunded. Precious public resources should be used to support our most vulnerable students through model programs of equity like Zoom Schools, currently threatened with budget reductions. Public resources should not be spent on law enforcement, including school police, when cooperating with ICE.
