Quay County Sun - Serving the High Plains

Letter to the editor


August 5, 2014

The most important part of a child’s education is their ability to read. If we want New Mexico to keep moving forward, we need to make sure our kids can read effectively. Fortunately, our governor understands this, and she has worked during her first term to get the job done.

When it comes to our struggling students, Governor Martinez doesn’t leave them in the dust. She created the “New Mexico Reads to Lead” program in order to give teachers the necessary training to help struggling students. The results are clear: Third graders who are exposed to reading intervention showed greater achievement gains than students who did not receive extra help.

Our state has a long way to go, but we are making improvements and moving forward.
