Martinez and Yazzie Consolidated Lawsuit Response Updates
The New Mexico Public Education Department has defined strategies, established timelines, and begun the work of ensuring that all students in New Mexico are engaged in a culturally and linguistically responsive education system that meets their social, emotional, and academic needs. We have much more to do, and to that end, the PED’s Identity, Equity, and Transformation team will soon share updates on how the PED is addressing those needs. To learn more about where we’ve been, where we are now, and what we’re working on for the future, the Martinez and Yazzie Consolidated Lawsuit page is packed with resources and information. We will continue to provide updates on this page as these efforts continue.
