Push For Teacher Improvement In Nevada Includes Teach For America

When Gov. Sandoval gave his State of the State address last week, he pledged to invest $135 million in new money into education. One program he singled out to get some of that money is Teach for America, a non-profit organization that recruits recent college graduates to teach in low income communities. While the governor didn't give a specific amount, he did say he wants new investment in the program to train and develop great teachers across Nevada. We'll talk with the head of the Las Vegas branch of Teach for America and a representative from the Nevada State Education Association about the governor's goals and how they will affect teachers in Nevada.
