Teacher bailouts

Patrick Gibbons

Thanks to the teacher bailout, Nevada went from “potentially” losing “thousands” of “teachers” (with less than half of all school district employees working as classroom teachers, I’ve already called shenanigans on Nevada’s political elites) to wanting to hire up to 1,400 more. However, throwing $83 million in one-time stimulus at education to hire more teachers (which won’t improve student achievement) is just another example of bipartisan irresponsibility in the Silver State.
