From the report's introduction: "Much progress has been made in New Mexico over the past decade in implementing policies designed to improve low-income children’s access to quality care. This first annual report is intended to share important data about the state’s progress toward those goals, and to invite discussion and analysis among all stakeholders, drawing on a common set of data. The report is also intended to highlight areas in need of improvement, and to serve as a catalyst for discussion of whether policy choices are effecting meaningful change for families. The report concludes with recommended next steps for gathering the data needed to better inform policymaking that supports access to quality child care for low-income working families."
