Help Us Investigate School Discipline In New Mexico

Do you know about suspensions, 

expulsions or arrests in Gallup-McKinley public schools?

Journalists would like to hear your experiences for an important news story.

New Mexico In Depth and ProPublica, two newsrooms with a track record of covering issues affecting Native American communities, are teaming up to examine what’s really happening in New Mexico classrooms. We’re looking at school suspensions, expulsions, arrests and referrals to law enforcement, especially in Gallup-McKinley County Schools.

Nationwide, Native American students have been subjected to high rates of school suspension, expulsion and referrals to law enforcement. We want to understand how this is playing out in New Mexico’s public schools.

Are you a student, teacher, parent, or community member who can help us get this story right? Can you help us with tips, or help spread the word?

We respect your voice and take your privacy seriously.
