Nevada Succeeds is the business voice for education, and we work with education professionals, policymakers, parents and the public to address the state’s educational and economic needs. We understand that 21st­ century education is an economic necessity—not just for individuals, but also for the businesses that ultimately employ the students produced by Nevada’s education pipeline. Through policy and advocacy, we work to bring immediate and continuous improvements to all schools and all students in Nevada.
At Nevada Succeeds, we believe that every student deserves an education that prepares them for success in today’s dynamic, globally competitive economy. Like our members in the business community, we achieve our goals by being flexible, innovative and pragmatic. We seek to be constructive, supportive partners in helping modernize Nevada’s public education system, and believe that the business community has both a moral obligation and economic imperative to contribute to the education conversation by advocating on behalf of smart, responsible reforms.
