At the Roundhouse
See the bills related to education and workforce development we’re tracking during the legislative session. FOCUS bills are selected as our key priorities and as indicators of friendliness to business.
A strong community college system that works with public schools, home schools and non-public schools, the higher education system as a whole, and New Mexico employers to develop, train, and retain a globally competitive workforce is vital to the state’s economic health.
ACI supports a world-class university system (public and private) that is demand-driven, responsive to the needs of New Mexico businesses and communities, fosters innovation, and facilitates entrepreneurship.
Without a quality education system, the state cannot recruit and retain quality employers and will not be able to compete economically.
