“Think New Mexico, an independent policy think tank based in Santa Fe, analyzed spending data in all of the state’s 89 school districts and found that the best-performing ones consistently devote a greater share of their budgets to classroom instruction.

We commend Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham for signing language in this year's budget to "ensure that most of the money appropriated is spent in classrooms, not on administrative expenses."
.
This will help make sure that New Mexico's education dollars reach our students and teachers in the classroom!
