Chanting "No More Cuts," Educators Rally at the Roundhouse

Feb 21, 2017

When public schools budgets in New Mexico were cut by $46-million dollars in last fall’s special legislative session, educators’ morale sank.  Yesterday, though, dozens from around the state expressed a glimmer of hope, after a House committee approved a spending bill that would put some of that money back into the classroom.  As KSFR’s Deborah Martinez reports, legislators vowed to support public education and the rallying cry, “no more cuts.”
