I've mentioned before that one of the many reasons we moved from Vegas was a 50% HS graduation rate. Not that we had kids in school, but just what were those dropouts going to do in a town with double digit unemployment? Where would they find work? Now for the second year in a row, the Clark County School District, by the way, the 6th largest in the country, is facing a massive teacher shortage. Despite the promise of $5,000 signing bonuses, the Clark County School District expects to start the school year next month with at least 700 teacher vacancies. http://www.reviewjournal.com/news/ccsd-start-school-year-700-teachers-short And then there is this: Nevada ranked dead last among the 50 states for the educational opportunities that it provides to public school students, according to a new report tracking how children have fared in the post-recession years. http://www.reviewjournal.com/news/education/report-ranks-nevada-last-education We still love our Vegas vacations, but living there was not for us. Just posting for some of the people in the group who think about moving there with their kids to ponder.
