"We need to make sure our kids can read."

- Heidi Gansert, Senate Minority Leader, explains the status of education spending in the Nevada Legislature, saying there is “plenty of money” to “make a significant increase in pay for teachers” while also working on outcomes, noting a piece of that is early literacy. She previously says there isn’t reason for the legislature to go into a special session and “we have to reach an agreement and then move forward.”
