How Will New Mexico “Move the Needle” in Student Achievement?

The NAMSBO Winter Conference may serve as an early report card on New Mexico’s Public Education Department initiative to “Move the Needle.”

Along with a proposed $4.3 billion support package from the state Public Education Department, lawmakers are mulling several pieces of legislation for the session, including revamping graduation requirements and increasing the amount of time students spend in school.

Those proposals, lawmakers and education officials have said, aim to improve student outcomes and close gaps for “at-risk” students, tackle statewide educator vacancies and better support schools and their leaders.
