The intent of the Moriarty-Edgewood School District Board and the superintendent for the district is to close 40% of the elementary schools in the district. Thus far they have been denied this drastic measure by the New Mexico Public Education Department (PED). They have attempted to further or bolster their case with supplemental submissions which are now being considered by the PED.
We are posting the “infographic,” found below because we believe it contains valid points against school closures. This infographic and others to follow were developed when massive school closures occurred in several large cities in the United States. Not everything contained in the infographic series will be applicable to this district, but each infographic provides food for rational thinking.
