These are the challenges and opportunities facing public education in New Mexico.
Fully funding public schools is the only way to ensure all students get the education they deserve, regardless of ZIP code.
Fair wages allow educators to provide for their families and do what they love without going into debt. Fact: 1 in 5 educators must take a second job to get by. This is not sustainable.
Students and educators deserve to learn and teach in a safe environment. That’s why we demand gun violence reform.
Regardless of country of origin, all students deserve a quality education. We support comprehensive immigration reform that includes a path to citizenship, and rejects separating children from their families.
Educators deserve access to the benefits they spent their lives paying for. Protecting pensions and Social Security ensures retired educators live with dignity.
Here's what you can do to support public education where you live.
For every child to have the opportunity to succeed, politicians must fight for quality public schools. I pledge to support candidates in the 2020 election who are champions for New Mexico students.
