This weekend it was announced that Santa Fe Superintendent Joel Boyd has been offered a job to head the Fort Worth Independent School district, a district comprised of 135 schools and 86,000 students. Whether Boyd accepts the job -- and an increased salary of nearly $150k dollars – has not yet been decided. Regardless, Boyd has said he would stay through this school year. KSFR's Zelie Pollon spoke with Santa Fe School board president Steven Carrillo about the announcement and what the School board is considering if and when Boyd leaves.

The results show New Mexico roadways are in significantly worse shape than previously thought, with only 70 percent in good or fair condition. Officials say this is a reflection of the state road fund taking a double hit in recent years from the slow economy as well as fewer federal funds. During the current legislative session, there appears to be consensus on the need, but disagreement on how to pay for the solution.

When Kemal Ataturk, the founder of Modern Turkey created his secular state after World War I, he detached Turkey from both the Islamic and the Arab worlds.  As a result, Turkish journalist Cengis Aktar told KSFR's Dave Marash on HERE AND THERE, the Turkish bureaucracy today is largely ignorant of both, which he said has enabled President Recep Tayyip Erdogan to steer a dangerous sectarian course.
