ALBUQUERQUE — New Mexico has been selected to receive a $3.7 million federal grant to help school districts turn around persistently low- achieving schools.
The funding comes from the U.S. Department of Education’s School Improvement Grant Program. It was announced Monday by U.S. Rep. Ben Ray Lujan.
The New Mexico Democrat says recent studies about the well-being of children show New Mexico ranks at the bottom in several categories, and turning around schools is an important step toward providing kids with a brighter future.
