We enjoyed speaking with students at Monte Del Sol Charter School about getting more money to the classroom!

Santa Fe New Mexican: Letter to the Editor (Dec. 13, 2017)

Seeking solutions

"New Mexico has suffered severe educational budget cuts in the last several years, and Think New Mexico has supplied us with a potential solution. A great deal of time, energy and money goes into schools’ reporting on the administrative level. The solution proposed is to simplify the process by creating a central system of information gathering, as well as to decrease the general number of items reported. As the report by Think New Mexico explains: 'If New Mexico were able to shift just 4 percent of its $2.7 billion from administration to the classroom, it would mean an increase of over $100 million for proven education reforms, from K-3 Plus to prekindergarten to better pay for principals and teachers.' This is an important discovery which, if implemented, could supply much needed aid to the New Mexico educational system. It’s important to raise awareness about New Mexico budget cuts and consider practical solutions to this problem."
