Office of Special Education

  • In New Mexico educational outcomes are low overall, and they’re even lower for special education. In May the Governor announced a new special education office to help improve those outcomes. On the next Let’s Talk New Mexico, we’ll discuss closing the achievement gap for special needs students.
  • Governor Lujan Grisham recently signed an executive order to create the Office of Special Education, which is the first of its kind in New Mexico. A special education advocate spoke more about what gaps currently exist and how this office should work to bridge them.
