Nevada Proposed Cuts to K-12 Funding

Even though I choose to homeschool, I think we all need to respond to this outrageous cut in education funding! Many homeschooling families still rely on public funding for special programs!

The NQE Board of Directors is in the process of planning 4 simultaneous candlelight vigils on Wednesday, December 19 at 4:30pm in protest of the Governor’s proposed cuts to K-12 education equaling $96,250,000. These cuts will have a devastating impact on our students and teachers. Every school district in Nevada will endure exploding class sizes supply shortages the elimination of tutoring and ancillary programs.

The theme is “The Governor is Burying Education”.

The vigils will be at several locations in northern and southern Nevada. The exact locations will be confirmed by Monday. The locations are CONFIRMED as follows:

Las Vegas: Bonanza High School & Greenspun Jr. High
Reno: Swope Middle School
Carson City: Steps of the Legislative Building

These vigils are dependent upon the number of people making the commitment to attend. Simply put, if there aren’t enough people to speak out and stand up to these devastating budget cuts the vigils won’t happen and the cuts will.

If you are ABLE to attend please send an RSVP email to:

**ALSO include which location you will be at** You will receive an email confirmation of the location and time. Please make time to attend. This may be the most important thing you do for children this year.
