The end of the discussion talked about the surfeit of state run colleges and universities in NM. To show you how great the surfeit is, on a per capita basis, NM has 8 times as many 4 year state universities as does AZ. Here’s the math: NM with a population of 2.1 million has SEVEN state universities that grant four year degrees of 1 per 300,000. AZ, with a population of 7.3 million has THREE or 1 per 2.4 million. Dividing 2.4 million by 300,000 equals 8.
Additionally there was a recent Wallet Hub study that ranked public and private colleges. Of the seven state universities in NM, only one, Eastern NMSU, was ranked in the top 500. Disgraceful.
