Grading Schools in New Mexico

Senate Bill 427 to install a system in which public schools would be graded A-through-F hit a little road bump today but will be on the schedule for Wednesday.  This is a critical first step to identifying schools that need help.  With New Mexico students 49th in the nation - these steps are necessary and the tough choices need to be made.  SB427 would also provide financial incentives for faculty and staff at high performing schools. 

Senator Nava and Senator Asbill are working together to get things moving again.
