The children in the district are struggling to make it through. We have to come together as a State to give our children hope for their education. In the Clark County school District we had an average dropout rate of 6% which equals 18,000 children who decided to give up on school. In 9th grade we had 4.9% drop out; in Grade 10 we had 5.1% drop out; in Grade 11 we had 4.7% percent drop out; in grade 12 we had 9.6% drop out of school.

Our children our giving up, and we need to do something about it. We as a community just can't sit by watch this happen. I am already on the front line of projects to stem the tide of our children leaving schools. As a single mother of two children, I reared my children while I earned my law degree, and had it not been for great teachers, sharing the role of educating my kids, my job would have been a lot tougher. So I understand education and know that my role as a public servant includes, the need to directly serve our children, as a teacher, and a fellow Nevadan in the fight to save our students.
