N.M. Schools To Share in $213 Million

Associated Press
      New Mexico's congressional delegation says state schools and education programs will share in $213 million in federal stimulus funding.
    The delegation announced the funding Monday, saying it would be used to save teaching jobs and reform and improve the public education system.
    New Mexico has already received $97 million in education stimulus funds. The delegation said that represents a combination of funding for Title I, the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, vocational rehabilitation grants, independent living Grants and impact aid.
    Sen. Jeff Bingaman said the economic recovery package was designed to stabilize the economy by creating jobs and preserving existing ones. He said the funds will help fill gaps in New Mexico's education budget so that layoffs will not be necessary and students aren't forced into crowded classrooms.
