Just as kids head back to school this year, the Rio Grande Foundation has launched a new site that looks at how New Mexico spends its education money.
The site has searchable databases of payroll, contracts and other spending of most school districts in the state. The foundation says the site is a work in progress and will grow with additional information.
As the state further scrutinizes what it spends on education, and as it remains a hot topic in the gubernatorial race, It's nice to see so much information in one place. Check it out.
