    NEVADA BUDGET $14 MILLION FOR ESL.
    Sandoval’s budget also includes $20 million to expand all-day kindergarten to more at-risk schools, and $14 million to target young students who are learning English as a second language. About 15 percent of Nevada students are English language learners.

    LIMITED ENGLISH CLASSES COSTLY.

    CARSON CITY -- Teaching children with limited English skills costs the state $722 million a year, takes instruction time from other students and contributes to Nevada's bottom ranking on student achievement on tests, according to a study by a national anti-illegal immigration group.

    The Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) concluded in a soon-to-be released study that student performance in Nevada will lag behind most other states as long as state and federal officials fail to reduce the flow of illegal immigrants into the state.
