Let's Talk New Mexico 6/25, 8a: Teachers, parents and students are facing tough questions about what classes will look like as the pandemic stretches into the fall. The struggle for equity in the system is ongoing; a judge next week could decide whether the state will stay under court order to fix racial and socioeconomic disparities. And some programs meant to serve marginalized students had their budgets cut in this week’s special legislative session. This week on Let’s Talk New Mexico, we’re talking K-12 education, and we want to hear from you. What systemic changes do you want to see in public schools? Email letstalk@kunm.org, or call in live during the show at 277-5866.
