Transform Education New Mexico
In a landmark court decision, a judge ruled that New Mexico is violating the constitutional rights of students to a sufficient education (Yazzie/Martinez lawsuit). The court ordered the state to take immediate steps to fix our schools and fully support low-income, Native American, Hispanic, English language learner, and special needs students. Transform Education NM is a coalition of education, tribal and community leaders advancing a new vision for our public education system in New Mexico, following this landmark decision. For more information on the platform, partners, and what's happening next please view the Transform Education New Mexico's website, and sign up to be a member!
