Making a difference

We make life better for members and students when we fight for a strong public education system. Our recent wins include:

  • Pay increases for New Mexico educators, and a much-needed increase to tier minimums for licensed teachers. 
  • A cap on healthcare costs for educators to avoid surprises caused by the rising cost of healthcare in the United States. 
  • A significant increase in stipends for participants in teacher residency programs to improve new educator recruitment. 
  • Big increases in school funding — a 12% increase in K-12 public education, and doubling of the Early Childhood Trust Fund. 

There is so much more we can accomplish through collective action with your help. Join NEA-NM today.
