Michelle Lujan Grisham, whose comprehensive plan for New Mexico public education has earned her the early support of the New Mexico American Federation of Teachers (AFT), the National Educators Association New Mexico (NEA), and families across the state, launched her Educators for Michelle group today.

The group, representing more than 200 educators from across New Mexico, is standing behind Michelle and Howie for their commitment to drop the PARCC evaluation, transform our teacher evaluations, reinvest in our schools, and make sure every New Mexico child has access to pre-k. Michelle released her 11 point New Direction for New Mexico Schools plan in April.

“I couldn’t be more proud to have the support of this diverse group of educators who go to work each day to create a better future for our kids,” said Michelle Lujan Grisham. “Great public schools begin with great educators, and as governor, I will ensure that these valuable public servants have the support they need to give our kids the education and future they deserve.”

“As an educator myself, I can’t wait to work with Michelle, educators, and communities across the state to create a new direction for public education in New Mexico,” said Senator Howie Morales. “By reinvesting in our classrooms, supporting professional development opportunities, and paying our educators fairly, I know we can work together to build stronger futures for all New Mexico children.”
