As one Latino Governor leaves, another arrives!

January 2nd, 2011 · 2 Comments

New Mexico, one of the most Latino states in the Union, has just ushered in the era of Susana Martinez, the newly inaugurated Republican to replace Democrat Bill Richardson. She has indicated that she will make education one of her top priorities as governor, and she has a really unique opportunity to distinguish herself as New Mexico is one of the lowest ranking states in high school graduation rates in the country.

Yesterday in her inaugural address, Martinez said, “Nothing we do is more indispensable for our future and the well-being of our children, or will receive more attention from my administration than guaranteeing children a quality education.”

    It is hard to buy into what Susana Martinez says about education when all I have heard come out of her mouth dealt with illegal immigration being her top priority.

    If Susana Martinez was really interested in education- she would have been a teacher.
