House GOP calls for community-focus over gov interference in local schools


SANTA FE – State House Republicans today issued a letter to the NM Public Education Department (PED) opposing the new directive from the Lujan Grisham administration that would prevent local school districts from implementing 4-day school weeks. This top-down demand fails to recognize that 4-day school weeks are successful in promoting student achievements, as well as popular among parents, teachers, and rural communities. The NM PED is continuing to micromanage public schools by forcing “a one size fits all” approach that weakens community leadership of local school districts and is harmful to students.
