Professor Sylvia Lazos Quoted in Fronteras

Sylvia Lazos is the Justice Myron Leavitt Professor of Law at the William S. Boyd School of Law.

On Sept. 9, she was quoted in the Fronteras article 14 Schools, 1 Plan: Nevada's New Blueprint For ELL Education.

"It is by far not enough... it is still a high risk proposition because the needs are so great," she said, regarding the $40 million designated by the state to improve ELL education in the Clark County School District.

Professor Lazos is a frequent op-ed contributor, and her expertise is sought by print and broadcast media on a wide range of subjects, including higher education, immigration, race relations, government, voting and initiatives.
