Q: What’s the biggest challenge facing Las Vegas in the next five years?
A: The education system and our ability to produce graduates in K-12, as well as higher education, that are prepared to meet current and future workforce needs. If we can get this right we will be able to effectively diversify business and industry. If not, we will continue to see critical negative economic impacts, i.e. job losses, income declines and reduced funding to state and local governments to support social and community services during normal economic cycles.
