We are happy to have Neel Roy from Albuquerque as one of our stellar 2018 Summer Leadership Interns! Neel, a rising senior at Texas Tech University majoring in mathematical economics. At Texas Tech, he founded a service organization that provides academic support to children in the most impoverished areas of Lubbock, TX, studied Alzheimer’s pathology, and investigated state-level minimum wage hikes. He is also interning at Senator Tom Udall’s office in Albuquerque this summer. After completing his bachelor’s degree, Neel intends to attend medical school and ultimately work at the intersection of healthcare and public policy. ... See MoreSee Less

Think New Mexico studied New Mexico’s highest performing school districts and found that they tend to spend a larger proportion of their budgets in the classroom, rather than on central administration. If New Mexico reduced its spending on education administration to the national average in every category of administrative spending, it would free up $54.6 million that could be better spent in the classroom.

Is there any reason this doesn’t apply? Like is much of that budget going to extreme bussing for our really rural state? Is it going to food for our very poor students? What counts as ‘central administration?’
