Secretary Stewart’s delusional sense of “accomplishment” on COVID 19 in NM schools

We have often disagreed with New Mexico’s “powers that be” regarding their handling of COVID, but this recent opinion piece by Education Secretary Ryan Stewart is particularly shocking.

The gist of the piece involves Stewart celebrating his Department’s “accomplishments” during the era of COVID 19. Whether it means “keeping people safe” or training staff in COVID-safe practices, Stewart’s article is basically one big pat on his own back.

Of course, New Mexico students lost more classroom time than students in all but 5 other states due to policies imposed by Gov. MLG and his Department. He doesn’t even mention educational outcomes or results, partially because the Administration has eliminated most testing.

Remember, according to the “progressive” New Mexico Voices for Children, New Mexico ranked 50th on education BEFORE the pandemic.

  1. I read the piece and was disgusted with his conclusion of success. The role of the PED, NM school districts and the Secretary is the education of children, that was a fail during the pandemic and unfortunately prior. How do they (we) accept our state’s education rankings?
