  • Supreme Court overturns House redistricting plan

    Monitor Staff, Wire Reports

    The New Mexico Supreme Court on Friday overturned a plan that realigned districts for the state House of Representatives and ordered a judge to draw a new map.

    The court issued a 4-1 split decision that was tantamount to a victory for Democrats and the Legislature, which had challenged a redistricting plan ordered last month by retired District Court Judge James Hall.

    The justices said the judge should try to develop a new redistricting plan by Feb. 27. The traditional filing deadline for House candidates is next month, but the uncertainty of the redistricting case has cast doubts over that schedule.

  • Leaving 'No Child' law: Obama lets 10 states flee

    WASHINGTON (AP) — It could be the beginning of the end for No Child Left Behind.
    The goal was lofty: Get all children up to par in math and reading by 2014. But the nation isn’t getting there, and now some states are getting out.
    In a sign of what’s to come, President Barack Obama on Thursday freed 10 states from some of the landmark law’s toughest requirements. Those states, which had to commit to their own, federally approved plans, will now be free, for example, to judge students with methods other than test scores. They also will be able to factor in subjects beyond reading and math.
