ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Albuquerque Interfaith, an association of religious congregations, schools, unions and nonprofit organizations working to promote citizen participation in the democratic process, will gather Sunday to celebrate educators and to begin what it calls “a new conversation” on school reform.
Pauline Artery, one of the group’s co-leaders, said more than 300 people are expected to attend the 6 p.m. event at the Holy Rosary Catholic Church, 5415 Fortuna NW.
Artery said the conversation about educational reform has grown too shrill. Albuquerque Interfaith leaders and supporters will be calling for a dialogue that not only celebrates teachers but also works for a teacher evaluation system that helps improve schools.
Albuquerque Interfaith plans to make recommendations to the Legislature during the session that begins in January, and members will appear at the Roundhouse as often as possible.
