The Obama administration wants to raise federal education standards around the country. Part of that effort means coming up with new common standards and overhauling the federal No Child Left Behind Act. Forty-eight States including Nevada have signed on to develop those common standards in reading and math. We talk with education leaders and analysts about how to effectively and realistically raise education standards in Nevada and around the country.

Guests:
Keith Rheault, Superintendent, Nevada Department of Education
Patrick Gibbons, Education Policy Analyst, Nevada Policy Research Institute
Dane Linn, Education Director, National Governors Association
Diane Ravitch, Research Professor, New York University
