Southeast Career Technical Academy has done a great job for years at the high school level, and the Valley has a growing assortment of private trade schools. The College of Southern Nevada teaches some trades, but its core mission remains academic. What Nevada needs is affordable public higher education that trains adults for the kind of hands-on, high-skill jobs that fall outside the bounds of traditional education. From LED- and neon-sign design and maintenance to green construction, Nevada Tech (as we’ll call it) can help students develop the skill sets that matter most in our state. And how about a furniture design and fabrication department that works together with the World Market Center? Once we’re the best at creating employed graduates, we can count out-of-state tuition as a new revenue stream, to boot.
