The state is fighting back in an appeal against a recent court ruling that it is failing at-risk students and must provide more resources to public schools.

According to The Santa Fe New Mexican, the public education secretary says, “the judge missed the boat with this ruling.”

The secretary adds Gov. Martinez has been increasing public education funds, investing in more programs.

However, many educators and school administrators disagree, praising the judge’s decision.

The ruling by Judge Sara Singleton didn’t give specific orders for how state leaders and lawmakers must address the issue, only saying New Mexico’s children are “caught in an inadequate system and will remain there if better programs are not instituted.”

The ruling gives the state an April 15 deadline to start improving.
