New Mexico PTA's 101st Annual Convention, May 6, 2016

U.S. Senator Heinrich speaks at the New Mexico PTA's 101st Annual Convention. The event featured local speakers, informative workshops, and recognized NMPTA Proud! Awards winners. Last year, Senator Heinrich worked to pass the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) a bipartisan, bicameral bill to reauthorize the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA). The ESSA eliminates Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP), which placed one-size-fits-all benchmarks on schools, and replaces it with a State-designed accountability system.
