Raggio’s Lack Of Leadership

I was Chancellor of the Nevada System of Higher Education from 2004 through 2009.  I was a political neophyte and was shocked at the inability of the Nevada Legislature to do anything to improve Nevadas education system, especially higher education.  Bill Raggio, who had been given credit on a daily basis for building an education system in this state that could compete with other states was a mystery to me.  The strength in the system had long faded into outer space because of Raggios lack of leadership.   Nevadans for 50 years have been oblivious of that fact.  Raggios lack of leadership in supporting Nevadas education system was a primary reason for Nevadas failure in developing a world-class education system.

  1. Seems like the entire State is infested with a lack of leadership. Instead of wasting time on nonsense like a fat tax, the legislature should be doing EVERYTHING to bring private sector jobs to the Silver State and good schools are part of the equation.
