KOB - Gov. Susana Martinez is slated to address leaders of the state's colleges and universities just days after a new report said New Mexico colleges were some of the most underperforming nationwide. Martinez is scheduled Monday to speak at the Central New Mexico Community College-Workforce Training Center, and is expected to urge regents and administrators to develop a new plan aimed at fixing state colleges. Competitive Workforce, a U.S. Chamber of Commerce affiliate, named the state's two-year and four-year public institutions among the worst. According to the national study, the state's 19 community colleges and six public universities received D and F grades for student access and academic performance. The study found that 70 percent of New Mexico college students receive federal aid but only 40 percent of them graduate.
