New Mexico Coalition for Charter Schools 

Legislative Platform 2014


Vision :

Our vision is a world class education for all New Mexicans one charter school at a time.


Our mission is to lead and support public charter school quality, growth, autonomy in New Mexico.

I.          The Coalition supports accountability for all schools and for teachers that leads to improved outcomes for students.

II.         The Coalition supports the creation of high quality educational options for parents and students.

V.         The Coalition supports strengthening current laws requiring charter school access to HB-33 and SB-9 funds.

VI.        The Coalition supports the establishment of a revolving fund for charter school facilities.
