Las Vegas, Nev. ( & KRNV) -- Senator Harry Reid announced a $435,616 grant to the Nevada Department of Education from the United States Department of Education. This grant will expand access to Advanced Placement classes and tests for low and middle income students across Nevada.

“Advanced Placement courses are important in helping to prepare our kids for success later in life. The cost of the tests at the end of the year should not be a deterrent for any student wishing to further their education. With this funding, schools across Nevada will be able to ensure that students ready to take the on the challenge of college level courses will have the opportunity and will reap the awards of achieving college credits in high school,” Reid said.

According to the United States Department of Education, these grants for the Advanced Placement Test Fee Program will cover some, if not all of the costs of testing associated with Advanced Placement courses offered in high school. These courses include Advanced Placement courses and International Baccalaureate courses.

What is 435k in education going to buy? Harry Reid and his buddies spent more on a luncheon in Alaska helping his liberal buddy to get elected. Reid will make more in one day with his marijuana dispensary! Nevada is the easiest state to hide your name behind a Limited Liability Corporation. I guarantee one of his newly formed LLC's is the first of 22 applicants filed! Watch out for this self proclaimed hero, elections are coming.
