LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3) -- More than 100 Clark County teachers united to send a message to Carson City.

They want lawmakers to hear one of their top concerns: Reducing class sizes.

Student-to-teacher ratios in Clark County are among the highest in the nation.

The teachers union wants to end that trend and is calling on lawmakers to act this legislative session.

While the district recently announced it will hire at least 1,700 new teachers after winning an arbitration case over the union, teachers say bringing average class sizes down by one or two students is not enough.

Regarding the recent resignation of Dwight Jones, teachers say when it comes to a new superintendent, they want one who will be in for the long term.
