The public school system in Nevada, and particularly in Clark County, has many needs that will ultimately require funding, most notably capital funds to address the dire necessity for more campuses and to maintain and repair buildings on existing campuses. But with regard to poor-performing schools, it’s been shown time and time again that without accountability, throwing money at those schools doesn’t solve the problem.
Right now, Nevada stands on the cutting edge of the drone industry. A drone program at Creech Air Force Base employs 250 pilots and crew members, and in June, Nevada was designated as one of just six states that the Federal Aviation Administration approved to host drone testing. This fall, the University of Nevada, Las Vegas launched a drone studies minor program, and the University of Nevada, Reno started its drone minor last January.
