Public education funding is one of the largest expenses in the state budget. On the next New Mexico in Focus, we look at how funding is allocated to schools and what’s at stake in current budget discussions during the legislative session. And we ask some groups why they are “grading” legislation to try to help the public better follow what’s happening in the Roundhouse. Learn more about our People, Power and Democracy project.
People, Power and Democracy explores ethics, accountability and transparency in government. Our partners are KUNM, New Mexico in Depth, New Mexico News Port and New Mexico PBS.
Support for coverage on NMiF comes from the Thornburg Foundation and NMPBS viewers.
