Parents know their children better than any politician or school district ever could. That’s why Nevada Policy fights to empower parents with the freedom to choose the educational options that best suits their children’s unique needs.
Since 1991, Nevada Policy has fought for the right of every student in Nevada to have access to a quality education that helps prepare them for a fulfilling future. We believe such a basic right is the foundation for a truly prosperous and free Nevada.

By almost any measure, Nevada's education system ranks low, often at the nation’s bottom. Consequently, it makes sense that Gov. Brian Sandoval should elevate education to his topmost priority.
