Question:

As we reported this week in the IVLV newsletter, it is estimated that more than 68,000 students in Clark County do not have English as their primary language and more than 60% of the students live in poverty. Granted money is tight for most people, but this week’s Reader Poll asks the question . . . How would you suggest we fix this growing student problem in Clark County, which is where Las Vegas resides.  What is your opinion? We want to hear from you!  (See other readers’ opinions below.)


PLEASE NOTE: The following text entries are the exact words of our readers

Reader Poll Replies:

I cannot believe I am saying this but I think Clark County needs to raise taxes.  Whether those taxes are on houses or visitors or wherever, those statistics are embarrassing.  Janet S.  Las Vegas, NV

Maybe a new tax on luxury type items could be implemented.  The average person is desperately trying to stay afloat, but I had no idea the students were in that bad of condition.  H. James   NYC, NY

State lottery or tax the casinos what a median income from taxes is in states that have lotteries.  Howard   Indy

I believe if you look closely at the universities and see how much they pay professors that never teach their own class or honary type people pulling salaries from the system could be reduced and redistribute the money.  This would be a start.  Ann J   San Francisco

maybe a 1 cent gasoline tax would generate the money needed to assist the students.  Gas is more of an appropriate way to generate income for a specific purpose.  Ed Smith

Unfortunately for a while we may have to have more students per teacher ratio.  Joan Meadows

I think making a assistant teaching program where you take students from the local universities who are trying to become teaches let them work like an intern to help with the existing teachers.  More people helping could ease the pressure of the monumental task of teaching so many.  Jeff Reid

I believe the parents should help with the added costs of there childern's education. If I was to move my childern to a non english speaking country, I would pay a tutor to teach them the language, if I could not afford the additional costs I would not move their.  Tom
  West Covina, CA

I think finding a new wayto help those in need is better than just passing out welfare.  Goes back to the story about teaching people to fish rather than giving them a fish.  Walt S.  Florida

Find out which students are in the country illegally and send them back to their country of origin.  Mike   Milwaukee, Wi
