New Mexico's children are being left behind. Studies that compare New Mexico to other states show time and time again that our state sits at or near the bottom when it comes to our children's wellbeing. We know that income levels impact education, so we should continue to find ways to improve financial security for families. But, we must also do our best to ensure that we are adequately investing in education to give our kids the opportunity to be successful.

-Help our kids get a head start by investing in Early Childhood Education. I support using a small portion of the state's Land Grant Permanent Fund to establish a sustainable funding source for early childhood programs.
-Improve educational outcomes for our children by adequately investing in our schools and supporting our teachers. We need to ensure that teachers have adequate tools to improve student proficiency in reading and math.
-Create more wrap-around "community schools" in the district
-Increase local decision-making power so that we can focus less on testing and more on the needs of each student.
