Here’s good news about Nevada State College:
1. NSC’s education graduates work as K-12 teachers in over a third of Nevada’s school districts and in other professions such as counseling, advising, and human resources.
2. NSC nursing graduates are employed by every major hospital in southern Nevada and in a variety of healthcare professions.
3. The percentage of NSC students who belong to an ethnic or racial minority group is over 50% in 2012; this has grown every year since inception, from 26% in 2002.
4. The NSC School of Education ranked first in “Quality of Instruction” and second in “Satisfaction with Faculty and Courses” and “Overall Program Effectiveness” in a recent nationwide survey of teacher preparation programs conducted by Educational Benchmarking Inc. (EBI).
Wouldn’t you like to have a job where no one had any substantive control of your activities? Wouldn’t you like a job where even though it was eventually discovered that you were incompetent, because you had been given a lifetime professional employment agreement, you could only be terminated for criminal acts?
I would like that for myself. But then again, I’m not a college professor. I don’t have tenure. I’m obligated to perform my duties at the highest level every day in order to receive my bi-monthly paycheck.
