April 23, 2017

New Mexico Education Secretary Hanna Skandera began an eight-city tour to gather public feedback on New Mexico’s ESSA implementation plan. Skandera’s goals are to close gaps in achievement and to improve the state’s education system. She added, “Proficiency rates dropped pretty exponentially when we shifted to higher expectations, and we are slowing closing that gap.”
