The author expresses his viewpoint on the Nevada System of Higher Education (NSHE). He notes that NSHE must be put out of its misery and needs basic rethinking. This is because the beneficial economic stimulus pitch used by NSHE lobbyists to state legislators and business leaders is not true. He states that the other is its prolonged insistence on ignoring the contemporary revolution in educational technology and communications. He adds that the NSHE 15th century education model is almost obsolete.
