The National Education Association of New Mexico says that in New Mexico, funds for education have been dwindling ever since 2008. Among the budget cuts that have surfaced over the last few days of the special legislative session is a call that would cut higher education funding including cuts to UNM's budget. On Friday, the NEA of New Mexico presented a petition to the Governor's office.The petition calls for no further cuts to public and higher education, while lawmakers work to resolve the state budget crisis. KSFR spoke with NEA representative Charles Goodmacher at the Roundhouse.
