ALBUQURQUE (KRQE) - An effort backed by Governor Susana Martinez, to hold back students who can't read at grade level before 4th grade, has been tabled by the House Education Committee.
Representative Mimi Stewart, of Albuquerque, who's the chairwoman of the education committee, says the bill would have required significant increases to school budgets.
A similar version of the bill is being considered in the state senate.
It was passed by the senate public affairs committee last week and now heads to the senate education committee for consideration.
If you're looking for something fun to do with the kids this weekend, or if you just want to get into the holiday spirit yourself, head out the Anderson Abruzzo Albuquerque International Balloon Museum.
This is something I would have wanted to do as a kid during my winter break: Destination Moon Camp! Here to tell us all about this is Michelle Watkins with the Challenger Learning Center New Mexico.
Dinner rolls are a wonderful compliment to those holiday dishes, and shaping dough is quite easy.
