2017 Survey on Impact of Insufficient $ for NM Schools on NM Students
WHY THIS SURVEY? [THIS SURVEY IS FOR PUBLIC EDUCATION EMPLOYEES WITHOUT REGARD TO UNION MEMBERSHIP (though Union membership is what makes our advocacy effective).] See www.nea-nm.org to join!
Budget cuts for our public schools loom over NM students and those of us who help them on their roads to success in school and life. NM schools have not been sufficiently funded to provide our students all we as educators could otherwise support them with. Since 2008 school funding per pupil has been drastically reduced, so any new cuts are sure to cause harm. Our advocacy against any new budget cuts, and for the funding needed is infinitely more effective when we can share with legislators and the public real life stories about the impact of both current and projected underfunding of our schools.
The information you provide us through this survey will help tremendously, and we are enormously grateful for your participation. Please note the stories shared by you through this survey may be shared with legislators and possibly the media too. THANK YOU!
