How do we create change by voting for a Constitutional Amendment?

New Mexico voters can approve the ‘Permanent School Fund’ constitutional amendment when they vote in November, 2022. The amendment would recognize that education begins at birth and allocate about $125 million from the state’s Land Grant Permanent Education Fund every year to the Early Childhood Education and Care Department and about $75 million to the Public Education Department. The fund has continued to grow at a very high rate. When the campaign to pass a constitutional amendment started over 10 years ago, the fund had $10 billion in it. Today it has over $24 billion.

Does NM need more funds for ECE?

Yes, Early Childhood programs have been underfunded for decades, and that’s why most providers pay poverty wages now.
