Gov. Brian Sandoval used nothing less than his State of the State address to label himself as a reform champ: “I will continue to fight for more school choice,” and went on to introduce a bill to establish a tax credit-funded school choice scholarship program. A strong supporter of charter schools, Gov. Sandoval established a revolving loan fund for start-up schools and allowed access to state bonds for charters needing to build school facilities. A strong new teacher evaluation system was adopted in 2011 that would, in the Governor’s words, “end tenure as we know it,” but has yet to be implemented three years later.
