LAS VEGAS — An organizer says more than 700 students, parents, teachers and activists rode all night Sunday in a bus caravan from Las Vegas to Carson City to call for the Nevada Legislature to provide adequate state funding for education.

Progress Now Nevada official Michael Flores said 14 buses were set to depart late Sunday from the main College of Southern Nevada for the eight-hour trip.

He says participants are coming from southern Nevada high schools, Nevada State College, the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, and CSN.

The protest on Monday comes with Gov. Brian Sandoval calling for deep budget cuts.

Today’s rally is expected to draw people from all corners of the state.
