061 John Foreman NM Assoc. of Non-Public Schools

On this week’s interview show Paul Gessing interviews John Foreman of the New Mexico Association of non-public Schools. Paul and John discuss the important role filled by non-public schools in New Mexico. They focus significant attention on the recent ruling of New Mexico’s Supreme Court that allows non-public schools to use textbooks purchased with taxpayer dollars for non-religious purposes. They also address legislation filed in the 2019 session that would essentially overturn that decision.   Finally, Paul and John address the public policy climate in New Mexico as it compares to other states on issues like school choice other policies that could help New Mexico get out of 50th in education outcomes.
