Nevada Senator Harry Reid today sent a letter to Governor Jim Gibbons calling on him to address Nevada's eligibility for federal education funds in a potential special session of the Nevada State Legislature being considered by the Governor. Nevada is not currently eligible to apply for U.S. Department of Education "Race to the Top" grant funding because of a state law that prevents student achievement data from being used as a factor in teacher evaluations. In the letter, Reid urges the governor to act as soon as possible to change the law and allow the Silver State to apply for up to $175 million in education funding.
