Albuquerque Interfaith Protects $18 Million in Spending for Lower Income Schools

After 400 Albuquerque Interfaith (AI) leaders knocked on doors to pass a February 2010 bond measure including $30 million to be invested in schools serving primarily students of color, the school district attempted to divert $20 million into a large (unjustified) district training facility. Leaders of AI fought back and in September the district decided to delay the project at least two years and return all but $2 million of the diversion to classroom construction and renovation.
