Policy Initiatives

COE Policy Journal

The College of Education is committed to engaging in research and evaluation efforts that align with contemporary legislative issues. Outputs of these efforts are periodically presented to Nevada legislators to help inform work concerning education-related issues.

College of Education faculty produced eight policy papers on key legislative issues during the 2015 Nevada Legislature. These papers were presented to legislators in advance of the session and provided non-partisan research and key conclusions. The papers covered issues such as autism spectrum disorders, child and adolescent mental health, educational funding, English language learners, improving the teacher pipeline, needs of students in poverty through comprehensive school reform, and Nevada academic content standards.
