New Mexico’s new public university has become the hottest school in the country, but a $3.2 million price tag and a state-imposed cap on new enrollment have critics questioning the future viability of the program.
On Tuesday, New Mexico state Education Secretary Brenda Smith announced that the New Mexico Language School would be a $2 million program with tuition and fees of $3,600 a semester.
She said the cost would be offset by a state cap on enrollment, but only after the school has completed its first semester.
The cost would also be funded with donations from the state, which will be the biggest source of the revenue.
The New Mexico Education Department said the program would be the second-most popular public school in New Mexico, behind the New Mexicos High School.
It is one of six schools the state has created in recent years.
“We are thrilled to have the opportunity to expand the New Mexican Language School’s curriculum, expand our program of study and increase the number of students in our community through an innovative, innovative program,” Smith said in a statement.
“I am committed to making New Mexico the leading state for learning in the state of New Mexico and this is a fantastic opportunity to do that.”
Critics of the new school said the state’s cap on the number and type of students enrolled is overly restrictive.
“I am appalled at the cap,” said Kristi Stahl, an attorney with the New Mexicans for Community Education.
“It has the potential to discourage students from entering into the program.”
Stahl said the school should have been able to attract students from other states and even abroad to enroll in the program, but because the state caps enrollment, New Mexican students have been forced to pay more for their education.
The state, however, argues the cost of the school is a cost of doing business.
“The new New Mexico language school will provide an innovative learning environment for students in New Mexican communities who have limited opportunities in the public school system,” Smith wrote in her statement.
The program is funded by a variety of grants and state and federal dollars.
The new program, which is the first of its kind in the U.S., will take about 100 students to the school.
It will be a “teaching environment” that has not been available in other states.
The students will learn about the culture and history of the region, as well as New Mexico history.
Students will work on the “literature of the Americas” by using audio-visual learning, computer lab, writing, reading and speaking.
Teachers will be paid on a sliding scale, depending on the size of the class.
New Mexico teachers are expected to earn an average of $52,500 per year.
The average salary for an average New Mexican teacher in 2018 was $68,200, according to the state.
The state said teachers will earn $100 per day, but it is unclear how much money that will cost.
The New Mexico teacher shortage is expected to worsen, and Smith has said that she will address it.
The education department also announced that students would be required to learn Spanish, English, French, math, and the humanities.
The program was approved by the New Hampshire legislature and is expected be implemented next year.
New Mexico has a $1.6 billion budget, about half of which comes from the federal government.
The Albuquerque Journal, however,, reported that the school will cost $2.4 million a year to run, with another $1 million in administrative costs.
The school will receive $1,200 per student per year, with an additional $150 per student in stipends.
The state will also contribute $300,000 for the school’s equipment, and $75,000 to its operating expenses.
