Nevada’s education system is on a downward spiral, says former state Superintendent James Guthrie. He recommends one dramatic change: Paying top teachers $200,000 per year. Dr. Guthrie joins the podcast to discuss his proposal, which he published recently in a Nevada Policy Research Institute paper. We talk about why Nevada has so many rotten teachers, how to pay the best a lot more without increasing the budget, and how anti-elitism is a barrier to getting kids a good education.
