There isn’t one southern Nevada legislator who has any meaningful understanding of the northern Nevada higher education system and the same observation applies to the northern Nevada legislators’ knowledge about the southern Nevada colleges.
This is the fundamental problem to the distributions of higher education funding. The present attempt by the committee, all of whom have good intentions, to fairly distribute state funds between the southern and northern Nevada higher education schools is doomed.
With the limited amount of funds, and nothing in sight to indicate an increase of college funding, the legislature will now only decide how to give students in the south and the north funds from an inadequate source. The new motto will be, rather than “share funds and support a few,” “spread the inadequacies of the system’s funding equally among all students.” All will fail.
