This week marks New Mexico PBS’ sixth in a series of partnerships with the community on the new and exciting project entitled Public Square. This month, as part of NEW MEXICO IN FOCUS, New Mexico PBS brings together movers and shakers from the field of early childhood development. Advocates, lawmakers, business leaders, and community organizers talk candidly about the recently completed legislative session, and the potential impacts on the state’s youngest residents. Participants cover everything from data collection and how to use it, to identifying creative ways to fund and support children as they get ready to enter school. New Mexico First Executive Director Heather Balas moderates this important conversation geared toward problem-solving and pro-active results. Involved, informed and in-depth.
