ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Graduation rates in New Mexico have dropped and that includes Albuquerque schools. The rate for the class of 2014 was 68.5 percent, that’s down from 2013’s 70 percent.

In Albuquerque, the rate was 62.5 percent, that’s less than the statewide average and lower than 2013’s rate of more than 68 percent.

Governor Susana Martinez said Friday in an attempt to improve dropout rates she’s pushing to put social workers in at-risk middle schools and dropout prevention coaches in high schools fed by those middle schools.
