It is sad that the folks in Carson City insist upon trying to dictate to the school districts what they feel are "Education Reforms".
One example is the additional probationary year added to the evaluation process, if a teacher is preforming badly and is not an effective teacher then it is not difficult to have them receive additional training or to remove them from the classroom.
Education Reform needs to be additional programs to combat the battle of keeping the kids in school, programs to help them be successful and graduate, show them that education has value and to get the parents to be more involved with the process.
Enact legislation that makes harder for kids to drop out and find employment at any job, if employers insisted on a minimum of a HS diploma then the diploma would have more value and the need to earn it would increase.
