Letter To The Editor: Skandera Chairs PARCC Governing Board

on April 26, 2016 - 10:52am
Los Alamos
In November 2015, PED Secretary Hannah Skandera became chair of the Governing Board* of the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC). 
Before she became chair, she was a member of the board. We’re well aware of the fuss over TESTING in New Mexico schools. We've been hearing a rather constant battle between the PED and NM teachers and administrators about the PARCC testing program and the grading of teachers and schools based on test scores.
This even led to lowering the grades of someschools based on the percentage of students taking

McQuiston: Driving And Texting ... Who Does It More?

on April 26, 2016 - 9:19am
The Jemez Agency

Now is a great time to talk to your teen about the dangers of distracted driving. Most anti-texting-while-driving campaigns focus their message on teenagers, and presumably should. Teens have the least driving experience and it seems like they are on their phone 24/7.

According to a 2011 Pew Internet study, 18 to 24-year-olds averaged more than 100 text messages per day. This is four times the average for 35 to 44-year-olds, and 10 times the average for 55 to 64-year-olds.

Not surprising information – we know teens text more frequently than their elders.
