Early Childhood Education
The state of childhood development in New Mexico
In New Mexico, 80 percent of children from low-income families are behind on the first day of school. By 2020, the Thornburg Foundation’s goal is 70 percent of the total student population entering kindergarten in New Mexico will be ready for school as measured by a statewide kindergarten readiness assessment.
