New Mexico needs more funding to implement No Child Left Behind
New Mexico needs more funding to implement No

SANTA FE (AP) - The federal government didnít give New Mexico enough money to implement the No Child Left Behind Act in the past school year.

Thatís according to a report released by state education officials that analyzed New Mexicoís costs of carrying out the education measure but did not address federal funds coming into the state.

The state Public Education Department contends the federal government shortchanged it by about $26 million.

The agency contends thatís the difference between the costs found in the report and federal spending figures from the US Department of Education.

US Department of Education spokesman Chad Colby says he hasnít seen the report but he says four other studies have found that federal funding to carry out the law is adequate.
