New Mexico increased spending on students by 1.9 percent in the 2017 fiscal year.

However, the state still spends less than the national average of $12,201 per student. New Mexico spends $9,881 per pupil,

Lawmakers tried to address the disparity during the 2019 legislative session.

The state's budget, signed by Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham, includes a 16% increase in education spending, worth $3.2 billion.
