Partnering to Reduce Achievement Gaps in New Mexico

In spite of recent increases, New Mexico has poor high school graduation rates compared to the U.S. average, with American Indian students and Hispanic students, in particular, struggling to graduate high school within four years. As a Santa Clara Pueblo Indian proud of New Mexico's many strengths and working at a tribally controlled school, I have long been personally invested in closing achievement gaps and supporting Native American students in their journeys through high school.

From 2013 to 2017, I had the opportunity to participate in REL Southwest's New Mexico Achievement Gap Research Alliance. With members including include staff from district, regional, state, university, and nonprofit groups, the alliance is addressing these concerns by working to identify obstacles to success and reduce achievement gaps among Hispanic and Native American students.
