AFTNM And NEANM Reacts To Court Decision On Motion To Combine Hearings

AFT News:
SANTA FE  American Federation of Teachers New Mexico President Stephanie Ly and National Education Association New Mexico President Betty Patterson released the following joint statement:
“We agree with Judge Mathew’s ruling against the most recent motion by the Public Education Department, which was to combine our organizations’ unique lawsuits against the educator evaluation policies of Secretary Skandera and Governor Martinez.
“We believe that each of our cases have merit and that the continued attempts of the PED to stall this process is unnecessary and detrimental to public education in New Mexico. Combining the process for the purposes of discovery is the correct path forward and look forward to full hearings on our cases in April of 2016.”
