This week marks New Mexico PBS’ fifth 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 a group of community members for an impassioned and informed discussion about some of the biggest issues facing our children today. The focus this time is on parental involvement and how it can help children get a strong start in life. After intense deliberation to determine needs and identify problems, these participants come up with a vision statement on the needs and responsibilities of New Mexico’s parents. New Mexico First Executive Director Heather Balas moderates this conversation geared toward problem-solving and pro-active results. Involved, informed and in-depth.
