UPDATED TUESDAY MORNING: New Mexico’s Public School System Ranked Last in America


 Please pray for New Mexico, it is a heart issue not a political issue…….JESUS is the answer, hearts need to softened and given over to JESUS! So many politicians think they are above GOD!

I have said for years that all the Republicans and Democrats just throw good money after bad money! You cannot buy a good education! The problem we have here in New Mexico starts with the family! Teachers are not babysitters! Satan is having a heyday here in New Mexico busting up families and leaving children behind. EDUCATION STARTS IN THE HOME! Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it. Proverbs 22:6. New Mexico is last in child care. So many children are being raised by a single parent or grandparents or aunts and uncles. Divorce, violent crime, Parents killing their own children!!!!!, drugs, alcoholism, domestic violence, and gambling split up families. Men not being men of God in so many cases. Politicians, both Republicans and Democrats think they can throw money after every problem and solve it! Well, look at the Federal Deficit Tracker  the federal deficit is out of control, the Republicans and Democrats seem not to care! So what did we get for that money? We are a such bad shape as a nation, spending money like there is not tomorrow, so much division, so much hate, so much crime, killing God’s babies through abortion and on and on I could go.

Whatever gave men add women they are above God????? It is very visible that this is an epidemic in America!

It seems so many want to make everything a political issue, that is a bunch of ‘nothing noise’ IT IS A GOD ISSUE, LOOK TO GOD FOR ANSWERS, NOT MAN! Look at the trouble this nation is in, the Politicians just make it worse, the people’s business is not being done, many Americans having to go to Canada now for diabetic meds! Many Americans cannot afford their prescriptions, because big money rules in this country! Those folks in D.C. would mess up a one car funeral!

Here in New Mexico we are coming off two terms of a Republican Governor, Susana Martinez who failed to make a difference.

New Mexico Governor Lujan Grisham, a Democrat, fired her Education Chief just after six months, leaving the department in limbo. The Governor signed off on so much money in the last session that I lost count! She spends money like there is not tomorrow! I am sad to say that we will not see any difference in public education with this Governor, she thinks money will solve everything. As long as we are killing God’s babies through abortion, God will not truly bless this state. Shame on us.

Albuquerque Public School is a ‘money pit’ they are always CRYING POOR, but they just handed out BIG RAISES!

APS is so very dysfunctional, in my 41 years in radio news, I have never seen such a mess as I have seen at APS since 1995 when we moved here. I have covered many school system in those years.

Thank the LORD for all those that home school their children and also for all the quality Christian schools we have in this state!
