Policy Issues in Nevada Education

Since 2015, faculty members within the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV) College of Education have authored a series of policy papers with the intent of informing thoughtful policy discussions around the most pressing educational issues in Nevada.

The Center for Research, Evaluation, and Assessment (CREA) and the National Institute for the Advancement of Education (NIAE) are taking the lead on publishing a new set of policy papers for the 2022-2023 academic year.

CREA and NIAE will release a series of evidence reviews throughout the 2022-2023 academic year. In addition, CREA and NIAE will sponsor an ongoing new research series for research performed by UNLV faculty with Nevada policy implications.
