State of technology update

Nevada: Gov. Kenny Guinn

As part of an education agenda that "centers on the basics" — textbooks, teacher training and reading — Guinn said he will allocate $20 million to education technology and the purchase of new textbooks.

By raising the "academic bar" for children attending state schools, the state has raised the bar for its teachers, Guinn said in his Jan. 22 speech. "We've demanded accountability, as we should, but we haven't given them the tools they need to perform at the level we demand — the training, the technology and the textbooks."
