ALBUQUERQUE ― The National Education Association New Mexico (NEA-NM) has endorsed U.S. Rep. Michelle Lujan Grisham for Governor.
NEA-NM has been advocating for students, public education, and public education employees across New Mexico since 1886.
“Teachers and other educators are looking forward to a new Governor who better understands New Mexicans heartfelt desire for a world-class education system. There is no time to lose for New Mexico students, so we say it’s time for Michelle Lujan Grisham for our next Governor. We have full confidence that Rep. Lujan Grisham will support students and educators in a way that sets them up to be successful,” NEA-NM President Betty Patterson said.
“It is an honor to be endorsed by the National Education Association of New Mexico (NEA-NM). NEA-NM is dedicated to advocating for public education teachers and students in New Mexico. As governor, I will work closely with organizations like NEA to ensure that we are providing what educators, teachers, and students in New Mexico need to be successful,” Lujan Grisham said. “Together, we will provide students with encouraging educational environments and give educators the support that they need. That includes giving educators raises, limiting school testing, expanding community schools, and creating a fair and balanced system of accountability.”
As governor, Lujan Grisham will work with educators, schools, students, and their communities to build a Pre-K-through-grade-12 education system that works for every single student and family. With support and input from educators across the state, Michelle has developed an eleven-point plan that will get State Government to work improving New Mexico education the day she becomes governor.
