Lawmakers say Nevada governor's program for English language learners inadequate
from Las Vegas Sun News
Legislative budget officials attacked Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval's program to set aside $14 million to help students not proficient in English, calling it too little for all of the students who need assistance. Assemblyman Andy Eisen, D-Las Vegas, complained that the proposed formula is unfair to Clark County, which has the majority of students who need the extra help with English. Eisen and others lodged complaints about the program, presented by the state Department of Education.
