Early childhood school fights to keep doors open

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – A local early childhood education facility is fighting for survival.

It is now raising money to keep its doors open.

Innovation Pre-elementary School in Albuquerque has been open for 24 years. But the director says with the state cutting the funding for early childhood education, they are hurting for everything from basic school supplies, to paying for its accreditation.

The school is in state Senator Jerry Ortiz y Pino’s district.

He points out that the financial crisis is not only affecting Innovation but several other facilities across the state.

He and the director say the state needs to do more.

For now Innovation is racing to raise money to stay open.
