New National Report Card Slams New Mexico Higher Education

As if to simply affirm what the Rio Grande foundation has been saying about New Mexico’s higher education system (see here, here, and here), a new 50-state report card from the US Chamber of Commerce and Institute for a Competitive Workforce, ranks New Mexico poorly on many aspects of higher education.

A few of the lowlights from the report:

4 year Access and Success: “D”, 2 year “F”;
Efficiency and Cost-Effectiveness “D” for both 4 and 2 year;
4 yearMeeting Labor Market Demand “D”, 2 year “F”;
4 year Transparency and Accountability “F”, 2 year “D”;

The full report is worth a read.
