Our Schools are failing our Children…It’s Time for Bold Action
The Report Cards are in for New Mexico Schools and the outlook is very dire. ABQ Journal Staff Writer, Hailey Heinz in her July 23, 2011 article basically laid it out on the table…”87% of NM’s Schools Get Failing Grade.”
Frankly, this is unacceptable. There is no reason at this point to be consulting with the same bureaucracy to come up with solution for the same problem. It’s time for new and bold ideas…like dissolving some of these school boards. It seems to me that these bureaucracies are more self-serving than anything else. It is time to reform the Public School System.
Let the result speaks for itself, “Only 13 percent of schools across the state and about 4 percent of APS schools made Adequate Yearly Progress under the No Child Left Behind Act this year, in a sharp decrease from last year.”
Wake Up New Mexico!
