New York Times Highlights New Mexico education woes

Even in stories that aren’t technically about New Mexico our State’s education policy failures are highlighted for all to see. The chart below is from the New York Times Morning Update. The story actually highlights the success of schools managed by the Department of Defense.

There are a few pertinent quotes from the article that are worthwhile:

Perhaps the most important lesson is that the schools are excelling not by discovering some new secret about education. They are doing what decades of research has suggested is successful.

Consistent with military culture, they set high standards and create a disciplined classroom culture.

During the pandemic, the military’s schools reopened relatively quickly — and it’s clear that extended closures were terrible for children.

More of their families have two married parents than is the case nationwide. By definition, at least one parent in each military family is employed.

  1. What schools should focus on is giving students a safe place to work and an excellent education. Everything else from sports to prom to clubs should be tossed out if that’s school can’t provide their students what they are responsible for, an excellent education. Having said that who isn’t a little tired of the RGF and their New Mexico bashing.

  2. RGF could ignore our failed politician’s and their bad policy, but under democrat leadership NM remains 1 of the worst places for Education/ top 5 worst places to raise a family. Generational terrible treatment of children by NM state CYFD. Thus NM struggles to add population while all those around us grow.
    New Mexico, proud Democrat welfare dependent, worse education state. Not much hope when our failed politicians encourage not working.
