In commenting on large class sizes, a Los Alamos School Board member said: “This (school) district, financially, is headed toward an iceberg like the Titanic.” The issue is much broader than class size.
Because of the way New Mexico funds K-12 education, our schools won’t have the resources moving forward to support the educational quality we have come to expect. Funding for the operation of New Mexico schools is collected into a central pool, and distributed back to the school districts according to a complex “equalization” formula.
The state requires and funds a “sufficient” educational program, but many of us would like to build and sustain superb schools. Unfortunately, New Mexico takes the punitive position that individual districts are prohibited from spending more on education than the formula provides. This approach says: if everyone can’t have it, you can’t have it.
