New Mexico Embarking on School Turnarounds

June 5, 2018

While questions remain about the extent of the state’s authority to hold districts accountable, Aragon argues this is a strong step forward for the state and will set nationwide precedents “for accountability, turnaround, and the limits of education reform within a new federal framework for public education.”
