Study: NM ranks 49th in quality of education

  1.  We must focus our efforts on reading proficiency by the end of 3rd grade.
  2.  Kids who cannot read by the end of 3rd grade, should not be promoted.

State has held that rank in publication’s ‘Quality Counts’ study since 2014….New Mexico was at the bottom for fourth-grade reading, and 47th place for eighth-grade math. Fewer than 25 percent of the state’s students were proficient in either subject.
