How are we doing as a state in teaching and preparing Nevadans to get jobs and be ready for the jobs of the future?

On this special edition of Beyond the Headlines, we discuss that topic on another Reno 2020 Town Hall, a collaboration between Reno Public Radio, the Reno Gazette-Journal and KNPB Public Television.

Panelists include: UNR President Dr. Marc Johnson, TMCC President Dr. Maria Sheehan, WCSD Superintendent Dr. Heath Morrison, and Jonathan Begley of Nevadaworks.

The program was taped in front of a live studio audience on Thursday, May 3, 2012. The show's host was Brent Boynton of KNPB with KUNR's Kate McGee fielding questions from the audience.
