Americans for Prosperity Press Release

This School Choice Week, AFP-NM Calls on Legislature to Increase Educational Freedom

Jan 27, 2023 by AFP

ALBUQUERQUE, NM — As National School Choice week ends, Americans for Prosperity-New Mexico (AFP-NM) is calling on lawmakers to prioritize increased education freedom for students across the state during this legislative session.

New Mexicans deserve educational solutions as unique as they are, and we know the key to that success is a quality education. New Mexico’s education system makes it difficult for students, families, and educators to develop solutions that elevate every kid and it’s clear the one-size-fits-all approach allows the majority to fall through short of their highest potential.

Every student deserves an empowered voice in their education decisions. The freedom they need to explore their passions and the opportunity to expand their skills and capabilities will drive their long-term prosperity. Our students, families, teachers, and communities thrive when kids flourish. This National School Choice Week, we hope you’ll stand with AFP-NM to support educational freedom and opportunity for our students.

“It’s undeniable that our education system leaves many of our kids without the skills and capabilities they need to prosper in New Mexico – let’s empower every family to have the freedom and opportunity to choose the right type of education for their children,” said AFP-NM State Director Burly Cain. “With the legislature underway, AFP-NM is calling on lawmakers from both sides of the aisle to prioritize legislation that elevates parents and kids as the decision-makers this session. Let’s empower the voices of children and families in their communities instead of designing chaos in Santa Fe.”
