New Mexico educators say fossil fuel funding is unreliable | Local News

The fossil fuel industry has been a mainstay for New Mexico’s education funding, but the state should seek more stable and reliable revenue streams as the industry grapples with market fluctuations and a global push toward green energy, a coalition of children’s advocates wrote in a letter Monday. 

In the letter, 16 education, community and conservation groups ask the governor and state lawmakers to establish new revenue sources for schools, so New Mexico isn’t overly dependent on oil-and-gas dollars in a market that can be volatile and with an industry facing a sweeping energy transition to combat climate change. 

“We don’t want to sound like ungrateful recipients of oil-and-gas revenues,” said Mary Parr-Sanchez, president of NEA-New Mexico, one of the groups that signed the letter. “We’re not ungrateful.

Optical Card Smart Education Application

High-Concurrency, High-Bandwidth, and Low-Latency Access Requirements

A Wireless Network Can Not Meet the Access Requirements in Classrooms.

  • Air interface resources are limited, and multiple terminals interfere with each other, making connections unstable in high-density access scenarios.
  • The battery of a terminal lasts shorter in the case of wireless access.
  • Varying latencies caused by signal strength changes and interference make users feel dizzy.
  • The battery of a head-mounted display lasts for about 2 hours, and takes about 2 hours to be fully charged. Charging is inconvenient and requires a dedicated charging cabinet.
