Las Vegas Chamber Releases First in Education Report Series
News

LAS VEGAS -- The Las Vegas Chamber of Commerce has released their First in Education Report Series.

The study on K-12 student achievement testing reveals that Nevada continues to rank well below national averages on standardized student proficiency exams administered to elementary school, middle school, and college-bond high-school students.

The report also notes that often cited national tests are given to only a select number of students in each state and in fact "no comprehensive, national comparison of the proficiency of all students has ever been undertaken, let alone published.

The report was done by Applied Analysis, and is the first in a series of reports focusing on Nevada's quality of education, education fiscal policy, and factors impacting educational attainment.  The reports are designed to assess the current state of education and to lay a foundation from which the Chamber and other interested parties can assess public policy issues regarding K-12 education.
