Learning Curve

State lawmakers introduced about 1,200 bills in this year’s 60-day legislative session — and about 300 of those bills related to education, with some 150 revolving around public education.

I followed — or tried to follow — about two dozen bills, including HB 2, the $5.9 billion annual budget bill that includes a 1 percent raise for all state employees, including teachers. (Some teachers may think a 1 percent raise is an insult, but I like NEA-Santa Fe President Bernice Garcia-Baca’s response to the news: “I’d rather be insulted than ignored.” She did say teachers are going to continue to work for a bigger raise.)

    I am subscribed, yet your site won't let me read the articles. Nor will it change my picture. What do I do?
