SUBMITTED RELEASE FROM RORY 2010
It’s because it’s true. Brian Sandoval wants to cut more money from our struggling education system than even Jim Gibbons, a man with a truly shameful record on raiding our schools funds.
In Sandoval’s own words: “I’m not going to question your math, Rory. This isn’t a math test, it’s about education.”
Here’s the math to Brian Sandoval’s agenda – in his own plan, written in black and white. And, yes, it is all about education.
$110 million ripped from class-size reduction programs, particularly targeting 7- and 8-year-olds.
$133 million taken from teachers’ pockets for a 4 percent pay cut to those responsible for educating our children.
$190 million more taken from teachers’ salaries in an attempt to balance the state’s budget on the backs of our teachers and schools.
$100 million stolen for a voucher program that would help only the 4 percent of Nevada children attending private school, leaving the other 96 percent out of luck.
TOTAL: $533 million cut from education
