Nevada joins forces with StudentsFirst

January 25, 2011

Last night, in his State of the State address, Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval announced a new partnership with StudentsFirst to develop statewide education reform policies and initiatives. 

During his remarks, Governor Sandoval praised Michelle Rhee's commitment to education reform (PDF): "Michelle is recognized throughout America as a leader in education reform.  She will add her considerable voice to our debate, and I thank her for demonstrating the importance of finally having a frank and honest conversation about public education." 

In recent weeks, Nevada is the third state, including both New Jersey and Florida, to announce its collaboration with StudentsFirst. The organization is actively engaged in ongoing discussions with several states, legislators, and city leaders interested in driving meaningful reform. 

Which cities and states do you think we should partner with next? Kindly weigh in below.
