Education

Isabella Valentina will be addressing her campaign’s stance on Education:

Quote

Education

We support increasing, to at least the national average, education funding for all grade levels.  School districts should be funded to pay teachers for extra teaching time at their contractual rate. We support public funding for remedial summer school. Teachers and support staff should receive increased compensation for all supplies used in the classroom that come out of their own pocket.  We support lowering the teacher to student ratio to a manageable size that allows teachers sufficient time with each student, including those in English Language Learner programs.  We oppose any public funding of private educational institutions including voucher programs or Education Saving Accounts.  We support revising the school formula to guarantee all school districts will receive fair and equitable funding.

We support fully investing in a strong university and college system that allows all qualified high school graduates to get a quality college education without incurring crippling debt.  We support the creation of specialized learning academies/schools with union apprenticeship programs to offer alternatives to college.  We support the planting of vegetable gardens at public schools.

We oppose any attempt to break up or reorganize any school district in the State of Nevada.

We support expanding after school programs to help reduce Nevada’s dropout rate.

We support a system of peer assistance, high quality and relevant professional development driven by annual staff reviews to support all education professionals to improve instruction for students.  We oppose using test scores to determine both teacher evaluation and teacher retention.  We support a curriculum that encourages a well-rounded education and does not depend on high stakes testing.  We support pre-K-12 broad curriculum including without limits STEAM, science, technology, engineering, arts, mathematics, world and American history, civics and government, economics, world and US geography, foreign language, vocational and technical education and at least 60 minutes of daily physical exercise.

We support reducing interest rates, offering refinancing and/or forgiveness of student loans.

We oppose any effort to censor or re-write American history through selective textbook writings, including any effort to impose religious doctrine on students.

We support medically accurate, inclusive, consent-based, and developmentally appropriate sexual education in publicly funded Nevada schools.  All efforts to protect pre-K-12 students from sexual misconduct from teachers, staff, and other adults on campus, as well as other students should be taken.

Momentum: 0

These PRs are becoming a little spammy. It's also not as impressive to simply copy and paste from RL, even if it's from a great source.
