Several schools suing New Mexico Public Education Secretary

New Mexico

SANTA FE (KAMR/KCIT) — One charter school and 18 school districts have filed a lawsuit challenging actions by the state’s education secretary.

The districts claim the education department is overstepping its boundary when it comes to controlling schools in a public health crisis.

The districts also claim some of the directives from the education department violate state law and the state constitution, and much-needed funding has been taken away from schools.
