Education > Organizers looking to reform key policies

By Tris DeRoma

Participants in the “Keep the Promise Bus Tour” met up at the National Education Association offices in Santa Fe Monday to assess how it went, and what impact it had on their mission to reform some key policies concerning student testing, wage structure, teacher evaluation as well as other issues.
Leading the discussion was the president of the American Federation of Teachers New Mexico, Stephanie Ly. Other participants included Ellen Mills, president of the Los Alamos Federation of School Employees; Karyl Ann Armbruster, a retired teacher from Los Alamos; Isidoro Herrera, also of AFT NM; Charles Goodmacher, UniServ Director, Government Relations, National Education Association, New Mexico; Jared Ames of Working America and Ian Esquibel, executive director of Learning Alliance.
“Keep the Promise For New Mexico’s future” calls itself a group of “concerned citizens, businesses and organizations who are committed to ensuring a quality education from birth to career for our children, students and our future,” according to a statement on their website.
The bus tour was to gather input from citizens across New Mexico as to what they wanted to see changed or improved when it came to New Mexico’s public education system.
