SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) – Community groups and business owners in Santa Fe say there is a growing movement to invest in the success of the city’s students.

The Santa Fe New Mexican reports that Santa Fe Mayor Javier Gonzales plans to announce a new education initiative this week that will involve community partnerships.

Organizers of the Santa Fe Interfaith Coalition for Education have already formed committees for legislative advocacy and volunteer recruitment. The group’s goals include finding mentors and tutors for middle and high school students.

Similar efforts are underway in other parts of the state.

A coalition of Albuquerque leaders in education, politics and business started Mission: Graduate in 2012. The group’s goals are to raise graduation rates and decrease truancy. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
