We recently had John Tsarpalas, the President of the Nevada Policy Research Institute, on the podcast. He was able to provide more insight on school choice here in Nevada. For example:
- In 2019, there were 24k students in Nevada that were home schooled.In 2021, that number increased more than 3 and a half times to 88k.
- There is a school voucher law that passed in 2015 in Nevada. Due to political pressure, the vouchers have not been funded for years.
The whole episode is interesting (John also has some insight on winning elections in the heavily Democratic state of Illinois). We start talking about school choice around the 8:55 mark. Listen to it here:
