The fate of dozens of failing public schools in New Mexico may be sealed today.
And those labeled as failing will be forced into a new improvement program run by the state Board of Education.
The board is scheduled to vote this afternoon on a new rating system that tries to clearly define, for the first time, which schools work and which ones don't.
"I think until we have full disclosure and tell the truth of where things are, we'll still have people with their heads in the sand," state Board of Education President Flora Sanchez said. ". . . It will be a critical vote."
