On April 11, 2018, The Albuquerque Journal published an op-ed by NewMexicoKidsCAN Founding Executive Director Amanda Aragon on proposed school turnaround plans from Albuquerque and Dulce:
Whatever you do, please don’t let our schools keep failing our students.

For the sake of our students, I encourage community members to stand with me in sending this message. We can’t afford anything less than real transformation in our public schools.
