Topics include the sudden departure of school district Superintendent Jones on short notice, funding of proposals before the Nevada State Legislature, school reforms, school evaluations, and how we can improve K-12 education in southern Nevada.
Small will be speaking about the school district’s new so-called “transparent” school evaluation ranking system as compared to NPRI’s ABCDF letter grade ranking system, which uses the same numbers. Listen in and learn why Nevada is ranked 51st state in the nation for K-12 education.

Bob Beers, a certified public accountant who was elected to the Las Vegas City Council in a special election last year to replace departing Steve Wolfson, has since devoted himself full time to the duties of his present office, and is again a candidate for the same position, this time as the incumbent.
He is being challenged by Fayyaz Raja, who ran against him in the special election but received barely 2 percent of the votes. Beers will address his qualifications for the job that he is now doing and what he can bring to the Council when he is reelected.
