School Grading in NM!

Pretty big first win for education reforms in New Mexico with the school grading bill 427 passing out of committee 7 to 1!  Senator Vernon Asbill introduced the bill which is a key part of the new Secretary of Education, Hanna Skandera's reform initiatives.  It gives parents a very clear idea of how schools are educating their children and is the first part of making those parents educated consumers of education.

Congrats - obviously a long road but getting out of committee with solid vote is a great start.
